[Sarcasm]Ok, you'll be able to get at least 5Ghz with that setup...[/Sarcasm]

We need more details, what motherboard do you have, and what ram do you have?

Time to start doing some reading:

System specs would be helpful as well.

Another good read:
Intel Core i7-920 Overclocking Guide - X-bit labs

If you have not done much overclocking start with finding how high you can get it stable on stock vcore. You should be able to get between 3.2 to 3.4

programs you will need to start. cpuz realtemp prime95
