Is overclocking the way to go

  1. I have an nvidia gforce pcx 5750 and need to put a little more power into it. I want to be able to run bf2 at medium video settings without choppy gameplay. Would over clocking my gpu do the trick??

    Yes, but if you have the money upgrade.
    if you do decide to overclock the process can be dodgey if done incorrectly.
    secondly check your cooling for the card if its poor then i dont think i wolud over-clock it.

    Overclocking will not get the results you seek. It can help bring up the framerate a bit...yes but really show a huge improvment...no. That is because the clock speed isnt the problem with low end cards. It is things like pixel pipelines, and your mem. interface that really slow you down. As said in the previous post, better make sure you have good cooling, to eunsure stable performance. But as negative as this sounds, you might as well give it a try, it is very simple.

    BTW-this should be moved to the oc'ing section.
