Yeah, I'm not a big computer techie (as you can see) so I don't really know how to get into the BIOS settings and all that. Nor do I know how to perform and stress tests. The reason I don't want to OC too much is because my GPU runs pretty warm (50 degrees in idle), and I don't want two things getting really hot. Also, the reason I'm doing this is because I am upgrading my card and I don't want my card to be better than my cpu and have it bottleneck.

50 degrees idle for a video card is actually very good...

my 8800gtx and 8800gt both ran close to 60 at idle.. and my 2900xt ran 63ish idle

Video Cards run hot.

That is fine

increase your HTT to get a higher clock, and raise voltage as accordingly... i don't know how your bios looks... so i can't really say... can you take pictures of your bios options

Sure, I can do that, not exactly sure how to get into the settings though. Will I be able to take a SS of it and paste it right away, cuz if not I wouldn't be able to get more than 1 at a time i assume.
