Hey guys. just a quick question. I have Core 2 duo e6750 @ 2.66ghz and A HD 5770 gpu. I am suffering from a major bottleneck. During games the gpu usage only goes to about 50% max. What Im wondering is what kind of oc would be needed to get the gpu to 99% usage.

Thanks in advance.

Anything above 3ghz will be a big jump. Get a cooler master hyper 212+ and overclock, though I am not sure if it will fit in your "cooler master case" Basically after 4.5ghz gaming performance does not increase, but aim for something around 3-3.5ghz.

Thanks for the reply mate, The cooler i have is perfectly good but the problem is that it turns out that my mobo which has the G41 chipset which doesnt allow for more than a 60mhz :(
