Hey, first time posting on Tom's Hardware although I've been a reader for several years.
Basically I'm undecided whether or not to OC my CPU for better gaming performance. I don't want to OC unless I'll actually get noticeable differences in performance.
The reason I'm asking this question is mainly because I'm running an HD 5750 1GB and I think this GPU is more likely to be my bottleneck.
Current System Specs:
CPU: Phenom II x4 965 BE
GPU: Saphire 1GB GDDR5 Radeon HD 5750
MoBo: msi 770-C45
RAM: Patriot Viper II Sector 5 2x2GB DDR3 1600
Case: Antec Sonata III 500 Mid (comes with Antec Earthwatts 500W power supply)
OS: Windows 7 64 bit (home)
I'm willing to spend under $200 CDN, Under $150 would be ideal, but probably unrealistic.
An option I hadn't considered until recently would be to OC my gpu... Since OCing my CPU would be virtually pointless i thought maybe giving my GPU a little more juice might give me a decent increase in performance..
