Need more information than what you've provided. And you're not supposed to bump after only 2 hours of the thread being up. Give people time to see your post .

I don't think it's even worth overclocking a 7900gs. Overclocked, it still won't play any modern games with good settings. I used to have two 7900 gt's in sli, they were rubbish!

I gave more information in my other post yesterday but it already died probably because it looked too complicated and nobody wanted to read all of that.

Somehow I knew after a full day of no replies if I said the forum was useless I'd get two replies within 10 minutes -___-

So back to the basics...I don't know what program to use nothing works for me.

Really

I'm not trying to play any seriously graphic intensive games though, I just need a little boost.

What would you recommend? The cards on the shelves here locally didn't look much better than the one I have now...

RivaTuner or MSI Afterburner.

The latest generation LOW END cards would wipe the floor with your 7900. That card is over FIVE YEARS old.

MSI Afterburner is all you'll ever need. (I assume it supports older cards)

Also, you get to a point in every components life when, no matter how far you push them, you are still leagues behind even the slowest modern day equivalent. Time for an upgrade.

Okay I didn't know this, lol. The guys at my local computer store tell me my card is just fine and comparable to the ones they sell so I was confused.

What would you guys recommend for light gaming? Particularly OpenGL games.
