Hello, I just put together my new computer and am wondering if there is a possibility to overclock my video card, also just wondering if this is a decent PC? here are my specs of my PC:

i7 950 bloomfield 3.5 GHz (OC'ed)
ASUS Sabertooth X58 Motherboard
COOLER MASTER Storm Sniper case
COOLER MASTER 750W power supply
Seagate Barracuda 2TB Hard Drive
G.SKILL 6GB SDRAM
SAPPHIRE Radeon 5570 1GB 128-bit video card
Cooler Master Hyper 212 CPU cooler
a b U Graphics card

You have a pretty good system, but the 5570 will be a HUGE bottleneck on that i7. What do you intend to do with your computer? if it's a gaming rig, I would definately invest in something more like a 6870.

One card enough, just need oc. Use default vga driver from cd.

One 5570 for Crysis? You don't need to OC as that card will be lackluster either way for playing that game...you will be able to play it.....just with the settings on low maybe medium if your lucky.

OP..always use up-to-date drivers... the version of CCC on the OEM disk is rarely up-to-date.
