Nvidia geforce 9600gt

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I have never overclocked anything before, I was actually looking at upgrading my entire PC so I could actually WvWvW in GW2 but then someone told me that I could probably overclock my PC and it would run WvWvW just fine.

I have
Nvidia geforce 9600gt
4094mb ram
intel(r) core(tm)2 duo cpu e8400


Would it be worth trying to overclock this or is a new system the way to go?

#EDIT#

I did a search for my 9600gt and found this thread containing a "how to"
http://www.overclock.net/t/557745/nvidia-geforce-9600gt-512mb-overclock-help

So if you guys think OCing my PC would make WvWvW bearable I will follow the above links tutorial. biggrin.gif


....This is totally the wrong spot to post this isn't it? lol
I shall relocate it. lol

Hmmm replacing capacitors, my head is telling me that requires snipping and soldering on new ones. tongue.gif

I have no faith in myself when it comes to "handyman" stuff like that. lol

Overclocking makes a difference, but usually not a massive one. I say overclock everything, see how your system performs, and go from there. Maybe it'll give you just that bit of extra oomph to make the game playable, if not, it's time to upgrade.
