a) Install Metro 2033 and test the card out @ 1080p
b) Install drivers and run a few benchmarks

Option B. Install drivers and run benchmarks. This will also bring out any flaws in the card, just in case you got a bad one. After everything works, go with Option C followed by Option A.

Then post your results, good luck thumb.gif

I'm going to use MSI Afterburner to overclock it. What would be the Core Clock limit of this card? 950Mhz? I don't want to push it to too high that it becomes unstable on Furmark test.

950 should be easy. EVGA sells these cards with a factory overclock of 950.

Aim for 1Ghz. A decent chip can get you just above this.

Used MSI Afterburner:
Core Clock: 951Mhz
Shader Clock: 1902Mhz
Memory Clock: 2200Mhz
Fan Speed: 60%

Didn't touch voltage.

For real world benchmarks what would be the best program/game to test it's capabilities at this overclock?
