Whats the best way to overclock a video card?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Right now I have my 8800 GTS (640 mb) overclocked to 649/1062. Would I get better performance by lowering the core clock and raising the memory or is the core clock more important? Oh and I am using atitool for overclocking.

well i for one would just use the coolbits OC method, and let it find the "optimal settings"

There isn't a direct correlation between raising the core and lowering the memory and vice versa. Just play around with it until you find a good mix that tests well.
