First off, I am really new to computers. I have a Radeon 6670 GPU and a AMD Phenom Ii x4 965 Processor (4 cpus) 3.4GH.
My question is how can i make it work better? I am looking at the AMD Vidion engine control center and i see options like: High performance GPU clock settings, High Performance memory clock settings, and fan stuff. Would love some advice on how to change these up to get more performance outta my computer. And yes I know its a PoS GPU, and I cant replace it right now.

What do you know about overclock? Is your 6670 a reference model?

All i really know is overclocking makes your hardware work harder but at the cost of its life span. And i dont know what you mean by reference model >_<

Yes, NO.

I think that you will need read a little about overclock in Google before get more performance of your hardware. Basically, overclocking is get more performance from your components, changing the default settings for a better and stable ones.

Regarding the life span, that's not really true since you will not see any dramatic change like a component dead in 1 or 2 years, even, you can re-sell it and never know when died totally.

Anyway, I suggest you read a little about overclocking in Google, download MSI Afterburner and start to check the BIOS of your mobo. Also, if you don't have a good cooler (NON STOCK COOLER), don't try to overclock the CPU.
