More about performance
  1. Have you already built the system?

    Also where are you looking for more performance in?

    EDIT: That RAM, is that frequency a typo? Looking at the timings I'm guessing it should be 1866Mhz.
  2. yes. it's built

    more to overall performance .. im into performance :)
    the Ram it should be 1600 Mhz, the timings is copied from Speccy by Piriform

    i need basic tips for Overclocking , and any kind of performance upgrade ...

    Well, you cant overclock that CPU (not through the core multiplier anyway), so that's out.

    You can on the GPU. The biggest bottleneck for the 660Ti is its memory bandwidth, so you want to be putting a bit more emphasis on the memory clock than usual when clocking it.

    If you willing to try you could overclock the RAM, but I personally wouldn't bother. RAM is very fickle when it comes to overclocking and is quite difficult, with little gain.

    Optimizing the SSD will decrease boot times and such. Here's a pretty big guide for doing so.

    Same goes for Win7.
