How do I overclock x800xt?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi All, Im a Newbie and I have no idea on overclocking.
I purchased an ATi radeon x800xt (Ati catalyst 6.3) recently hoping that I'll get better frame rate for DAy of Defeat Source.

Currently Im getting on avg 40-50 frames per second, but when I goto the areas of heavy action, (where most actions take place) My frame rate drops down to mid 20's to even mid 10's. Is this normal? I talked to some people in the game and most of them get around 40-50 frames on those heavy action areas.

I own a Dell Dimension E510 (P4 3.0ghz HT, 1g Ram,). I know this is not a gaming pc, and I know I can't overclock the Cpu. But if I overclock my Vcard, will I be able to get better Frame rates for this game? I usually run them at 1152x864 with AA and Af on.

I'm planning to purchase artic Cooling 5 rev2 as my new fan, and I would like some input on the steps toward o/c my vcard and if I will be able get better frame rates.
Thank You

Please read the FAQs on overclocking. Download ATI tool (just google ATI tool) and then you will be able to overclock your card.
