A few questions about overclocking

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Firstly, which clock of the card needs to be overclocked to improve anti-aliasing?

I got Just Cause 2 running (playing 3D vision) and the only thing that seems to slow it down (apart from high-res shadows) is even the slightest drop of anti-aliasing.

I don't have great cooling and I like to play with the speakers to get surround sound so I don't really want my card fan on max with all that noise. Any advice?

Could it be that I will just never get 60fps until I SLI?

I have tried overclocking with the fan on and pushing it to the max only really gives me 5 more fps, is that normal?

Does anyone have any tips about improving framerates without having to turn the graphics down too much, especially in 3D? I mean without buying anything.

Note my CPU is overclocked to 4.4GHz but I think that is more than my card needs and no game pushes it. But I could be wrong.

Sorry for the noob questions and looking for your answers with much anticipated gratitude.

Cheers!

I would say the core/shader overclocking would help slightly, but you're really held back by the cooling, and you're running 3D Vision which is another kick in your card's groin.

the latest of course. considering the recent v267.24 beta but it doesn't seem to have anything that will solve this situation.

even when i overclock to 850/1700 (for testing, which I can manage just about if I don't have it running like that too long) the FPS change is very low.

Anti-aliasing is just a *****.
