Overclock sticking point?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My Rig

e6300 OC to 2.4
2 gig corsair 667mhz xms
evaga 7800 gtx
gigabyte ds3 motherboard

My 3dmarks06 score is 4666

I expected better. Is it my video card slowing me down? Can I overclock it? My score before I OCed the front side bus was 4481. Only saw a small increase after OCing the processor. How do you OC a video card?

3DMark06 is mainly a video card benchmark. Your score is about right for your setup. Yes, your video card is your bottleneck. A 7900GT provides the same or better performance as a 7800 gtx. A new 8800GTS provides about 2.5 times the performance of your current card.

There are PLENTY of video card overclocking guides available. Just use the search function under the nVidia forum.
