The Age of Graphics Card, IF always Overclocked when Gaming?  

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hello folks

I want to know about your experience, based on it, how long the graphics card can survive, IF Always Overclocked when gaming? I know it's random, that's why I said based on your experience.

Thanks,

It's hard to tell if the card dies due to running higher clocks specifically.

My Geforce 3 was overclocked for most of it's life and failed after about 3 years.
I had a Radeon 3870 for 3 years or so with a modest overclock and it's still kicking.

By the time it makes a difference you will be hugely itching to upgrade if you already haven't, personally.

I am not a great believer in chip degredation. If you start smashing massive volts through the chip, this wont be good and I would imagine hours maybe before the chip calls it a day and dies.

My wifes computer still has a 8800GT running with a small overclock and that card is probably 6 years old now.

Like Beers above says, by the time the GPU dies, you will have upgraded or want to smile.gif
