Hey guys,

i have a i5-2500k and a gtx 580, but i feel like i am not getting the full performance i should be out of my graphics card.

Should i overclock? and if so how much?

Thanks in advance.

alright so i did a quick test in Shogun 2, (battlefield online wasn't working)

I did a fairly large battle and i started at 60 fps, but when the armies met and i zoomed in, i dropped to a little under 20 fps...
when i zoom out i get ~ 50fps

My system runs fantastically, but i was wondering if i could still boost it a bit.
