Overclocking software recommendations

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I'm going to be receiving my Gigabyte 7950 tomorrow and since I've never overclocked a Graphics card before I thought I'd make a thread asking for the best overclocking programs. I've heard that msi afterburner is a really good one to start with but is there any better? Also, what benchmarking tools would you recommend? And lastly can anyone direct me to any good guides?

Afterburner works really good and MSI has its own set of benchmarking tools aswell called Kombustor...works pretty well. Like qwertyking said 3d Mark 11 is good
