Does it make sense to lower the memory clock in order to get higher core?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Simple question. The MSI GTX 560 TFII comes with 880mhz core and 2100mhz memory. The card seems to benefit more from its core, and the memory creates a lot more instability than the core clock. Therefore, would it make sense to lower the memory to, say, 2050mhz if I could get a higher stable core OC?

Running 1920x1080.

Thanks!

Yes, your core clock is going to effect gaming performance in a far greater degree than the memory clock is. Really the only time that you would even overclock the memory is if it is the bottleneck for performance, which generally isn't a problem.
