Im abit of a noob so be patient.
I just put a gigabyte HD4870 in my machine (abit of an upgrade from my 9500gt)
The deal that my factory o/c 9500gt ran crysis on high settings, was a little jumpy, but pretty good.
I was looking for a massive improvement with the HD4870, and i seems to play smoother and cut scenes bettter, but i cant get the settiings onto 'very high'?
Do i need to o/c my card or is there some other way to achieve this??
Not to keen on overclocking untill i get more confident with it
I would overclock your cpu if you can and yes definetely overclock your video card also. I dont know if you will the acheive highest setting with just one card you probably would have with two of them but there will be some improvments.
