Good Overclock PC?

I'm building my first PC and I heard overclocking your cpu and gpu give you better performance. I have these parts right now and I'm not even sure they work together. Please give me any information on overclocking and how to do it. Feel free to adjust my system.
My SSD is just for faster bootup.
See if any of my parts can be replaced for cheaper but still good performance for gaming and work.

    I would change the motherboard to a Z270 Fatal1ty, way better overclocking board and the PSU to a EVGA.
    Also get a 580, it's much higher clocked than 480.
