post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I may soon be getting my hands on an XFX 9800GX2 1GB and I'm curious as to how it will perform in my rig. My specs are as follows:

CPU: Intel C2D E6750 2.66GHz
RAM: 2GB PC2-6400 800MHz
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-P35C-DS3R
PSU: Antec Trio TruePower 650W

Will overclocking to 3.2GHz with the stock cooler be fine? I had a bad experience once overclocking a P4 and have been reluctant to do it again since :s

Edit: Also I'm wondering if my PSU will be a problem area. Its a good PSU, but will 650W cover it?

650w will cover you. And as stated above, your CPU might not be able to keep up. Overclock it about 100mhz at a time, load test it, and go higher if temps allow. Oh, and if you're using those 17" monitors, that card will probably max them out in most games.
