biostar 6600gt only 800 mhz memory clock?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hey, new here.

just wondering if there's any reason why my biostar 6600gt 256mb ram pci-e card only has 800mhz mem clock. I found this spec sheet that shows it too http://www.biostar-usa.com/gcdetails...FORCE%206600GT

i'm planning on overclocking this card but want to know if i should bump up the memory clock more because it's so low. my roomates xfx 6600gt with 128mb runs at 1k(like most other 6600gt's).

i really haven't found much info online about overclocking this exact card and whether the clock speed is just insanely low b/c biostar just set it low or what

thanks for helping a noob

Id start with the core, more performance will be had from the core. When the max for the core is found, start working on the memory.
