Little increase in 3dmark after overclocking gts 450

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey,

I received my Asus GTS 450 today, and i decided to overclock it to get the most out of it.

I Used EVGA Precision till i reached a stable 907 core/2004 memory. The stock clocks are 789/1820.

After that I ran 3dmark 06 on stock clocks and that resulted in a 11831 3DMarks, after overclocking i got 11893 3DMarks.

So, is 62 points increase worth the reduced lifetime and extra heating? And why is it that i got such a small increase?

CPU is Q6600, PSU is seasonic 430w.

Alright, i will try vantage in a bit.

But i guess my rams need upgrading: DDR2 SDRAM (5-5-5-15 @ 333 MHz) (4-4-4-12 @ 266 MHz) (3-3-3-9 @ 200 MHz)

Will upgrading them to 800mhz ddr2 effect graphics performance?
