Will overclocking help me?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi, I was wondering if overclocking my nvidia will get me some benefits.

I was in need of a new computer and I was waiting to have some money to buy a mid tier desktop.

Without warning my uncle gifted me with an Asus A55vd-sx407h notebook.

I like this pc but I can't play any modern game since it's a notebook and the graphic card is entry level, a very bad for gaming one.

I was wondering if I can push a little the gpu and improve the gaming performance or I'll cause a disaster.

I use a cooling support when gaming and the CPU temp never went above 55 °C.

I have read some OC guides but I really don't know if it's a good idea to OC a laptop gpu.

Sorry for my poor english, here are the overall specs of the laptop: http://www.onyougo.com/asus-a55vd-sx407h-notebooks-specs_pi1843807e2

Info on the gpu:

bye all.

you can overclock it with a utility called msi afterburner which will also monitor your temperatures. just make sure they dont go past 75 degrees and you should be fine. dont be expecting extremely different results. you might get an extra 10fps but nothing too extreme
