I have a Core 2 duo CPU E6750 with a ECS 945GCT-M2 motherboard. I have a ASUS EAH2400 series gfx card and I am lagging in games. I do not want to change my entire system but I do want to know if it is safe to overclock the processor and get a GTS250 to avoid bottlenecking. Advice please?
Well first off what psu are you running this off, since your current card requires very little juice, And a newer one would need a lot more.
But if you have the right psu, a4850/70 would b a great upgrade.
And as far as overclocking goes. Im not familiar with that motherboard, but with a ''decent'' motherboard you could hit 3.2 rather easy. My old e6400 (2,13ghz) Did 3.4 so you could probably hit around that, if not higher
