Well congrats there bud! Feels good upgrading components. It's that rush of adrenalin we get that becomes addictive. wink.gif

That PSU can handle a second GTX560Ti 2GB in SLI later down the road. Hint hint Enjoy. thumb.gif

WOW

from a 9800 to 560 TI

BIG difference.

ENJOY thumb.gif

EDIT : For overclocking you can safely use MSI afterburner.

http://downloads.guru3d.com/MSI-Afterburner-2.2.0-Beta-11-download-2842.html this is the latest version

for benchmarks I use 3Dmark11.. Thats a good one.

i done something similar when i went from my 250 to 560ti gl you will love it!
@w4rl0 u can use msi afterburner to overclock it and to test it i preffer in game testing because i have oc'd my card before and used 3dmark and heaven bench been stable but unstable ingame all the best thumb.gif

MSI Afterburner is a great over clocking utility.

3DMark11 is a great synthetic benchmark to test your card. Also somewhat of a stability check. If you can get through a benchmark usually means it's good. Gaming however for a little bit will really give you the insight if it's over clocked to high or not.

Heaven DX11 Benchmark is another great benchmark utility used.

As far as learning about your cards limitations on over clocking - core clocks and voltage go to the OCN - NVIDIA GTX 500 Series Owners Club. Check out the first page, find your card, it's got a full list of clocks and scores to give you some great insight. Also ask the question there for other card owners that can guide you along.

Good luck and enjoy! Hope I've helped. Congrats again. thumb.gif
