Hello, I recently have been playing GW2 and I noticed my FPS is horrible. I checked my CPU and GPU temp's while playing and they are relitively low. So I was thinking, man what a waste.
Well, I don't know really anything about overclocking so bare with me. I'm just going to type down everything I know about my system and see if you can help me. Would be so helpful!!

Ok so for the past 10 minutes I have been messing around with MSI Afterburner changing the GPU. Currently in default state I get 32 FPS.
My graph reads GPU temp 40-50 Celsius when im playing, GPU usage is only 70-85 percent.
I changed the defaut core clock 810 to 950, absolutely no difference.
I changed the default memory clock 667 to 720, no difference same 32 FPS.
even when I upped the clocks my GPU temp and Percent pretty much stayed the same.
So i changed the core clock to 1000 and memory clock to 800 and my screen turned into spagetti and my gpu almost shut down, the reason I could tell is because in the graph there were points were the fan shut-off..
So why does this make no difference??
Also, My really really cheap ASrock motherboard has 2 slots where I see 2 GPU's could be put in. Could I just buy another cheap 30$ GT 520 and have the same results as something more expensive?
