Where to even start on GPU OC?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi i am new new to overclocking. Only thing on my pc i was really interested in overclocking was my graphic's card. It is a PNY 550TI and i was curious if i would be able to get much more out of it with overclocking? I do have EVGA Precision downloaded to set my fan speed's and so on but have not messed with anything else. Really just don't know where to start. Thanks

for evga precision just click on the sliders and use the arrow keys to move it up. check the interweb for safe speeds with out new cooling.

Sounds so easy it scares me lol. I will do some more research as you said and see what i can do. With stock cooling and my new case i play BF3 at max settings at about 65C....
