    I never used nVidia before.
    Yeah you can set Nvidia's program to overclock for you, it'll continually raise the clocks until it becomes unstable then scale it back a bit so you get the most out of your card. But depending on how extreme you want to go it may keep you from using your PC for a few hours while it boots up and down while stressing the card.

    I'll just make the fan go higher, don't want auto-tune to fuck up the card.
    I used autotune once, now everytime I go CCC, my computer crashes.
    That was my 5770 HD.
    I sold it to my friend who plays Starcraft 2.
    SC2 don't need that good enough of graphics.
    BC2 does.

    Yeah overclocking won't do you anygood. You really need to have faster ram if you game even though you might have enough ram size.

    My friend ordered 3 580s (all from different manufacturers), and they were all DOA.


    I have 2gb ram. Oddly enough, that's all I ever needed.
    Am upgrading to 16gb over the summer.
