I currently upgraded to the N260GTX Twin Frozr OC from newegg. The games im running are still getting into 50 FPS at times. Was curious if anyone would suggest overclocking the card. The manufacture says it has 85% overclocking capabilities. But I just want a little extra out of it without causing any damage to lifespan or whatever. My system isn't the best but expected more performance out of it. Should I overclock or leave be?
It's already overclocked from the factory, probably the reason for the twin fan cooling system (runs hot already). I'd say leave it alone. Not sure what 85% overclocking capability means. That's almost doubling the clock speed which I find impossible using software to push your GPU.
Your mobo and CPU are slow. You're not getting all of what your videocard can really deliver. I'd overclock if the mobo BIOS allows it but being Dell probably not,
Ok thanks for advice. Thought that was my situation with other hardware slowing it down. Will be looking into new motherboard and CPU.
Depending on your budget you can go low budget with an AMD dualcore or go high with AMD quadcore/DDR3 RAM. Personally, I'd go with AMD for the value. But if I had to go Intel, an OC'd E8400 and a P45 chipset mobo could max out what your GPU is capable of.
