well im here just to ask if anyone here has TDU for pc and what they can run it at, mine seems to only run at about 30+ FPS when i have an AOC 193+ FW screen with my 8600GT but im thinking of overclocking my GPU to make it run better, would anyone consider doing this? because i dont really want to destroy my card by doing it, anyone got any tips on what to set it to? and hot to not destroy it? :o

Can we the specs of your system? Also, maybe you should consider an upgrade. I don't think the 8600s are amenable to OCing.

well i have a:

Compaq Presario desktop with

AMD Sempron 3200+ ~1.8GHz MMX 3D Now
1278 MB DDR2 RAM (should be 1.5 but it wont say for some odd reason)
Nvidia GeForce 8600GT 512MB (copper pipe cooled)
AOC 193 FW+ 19" LCD plug and play (just thow that in there)
DirectX 9.0c
Realtek AC97 Audio

the game runs well enough in 1024x768 @60 Hz at a max of about 35+ FPS with 4xAA and HDR

I would hazard that you're being held back by CPU and GPU.

yeah :p  i overclocked it last night 3 times, first from the factory of 540 GOU clock and 400 cpu clock and went about 200 up for each, screwed up the screen, then went up about 50 for each and got about 5+ more fps in my game then set it to 600 GPU and 590 CPU and the game artefaced within about 10 seconds without overheating, but it comes with DOT, which i didnt use, i just used rivatuner and the forceware my 8600 came with, but seeing as its not the 256 MB 8600m that has a max clock of like 800 with trhe CPU im not sure what to set it too, coz i have the 512 MB 8600GT version....
