Is this an acceptable overclock????

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've recently overclocked my old 8500gt.

I'm thinking that my overclock is not enough, but whenever i push it at higher speeds i start seeing artifacts but it doesn't crash or BSOD. Do you think i should go farther? With this card?

here's the link:

I'd say it's acceptable...anything over stock is an overclock, even 1Mhz
