overclocking my 7800 gt oc doesn't improve performance

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
i used coolbits to overclock my 7800 gt oc. when i ran stress tests i didnt' see any improved #'s but when i put it back to stock settings and overclocked my cpu i was able to see improvements in stress tests. does this mean that my graphics card at stock settings is already beyond my cpu's capabilities at stock settings and thats why i didn't see any improvments?

Yeah, but even if you did notice a difference in #'s, I doubt you notice a difference in game play, I've never noticed a difference when I overclock my cpu or gpu.
