A small overclock isn't going to boost you 5-10FPS..

More like 1 to 2 at the most... try RivaTuner and make sure you up the fan speed when you do..

Give up on running on high settings for that game or GTA IV for that matter! Put a couple of things on Medium

Well can get ATITool (which works with nVIdia cards), and use the Artifact Scanner or run through the GTA IV game or Crysis Benchmark (Google it)

ok thankyou

got it clocked
732mhz gpu clock
1040mhz memory
shader is at 1830mhz

not bad for a card that gets up to 80c on air
this card gets real hot when i did some stress tests but when i play crysis its fine never goes over 77C

im almost hitting the red zone

playing crysis on high now, just about every setting on the highest exept water, shadows, sound, and small stuff.

didnt know this could happen with a card I bought of ebay for $50
i need to sli this thing

You got it for $50?

Nice!

Anyways, SLI isn't worth the hassle just to max out crysis, but if you really want to, feel free

9600 GT SLI is outperformed by 8800 GT's in SLI by about 10~15%. It should be able to max out any game on a 22" monitor. While attaining decent fps on a 24" monitor.

Newegg.com - 9600 GT, Free Shipping

Grab the EVGA 9600 GT and you won't be disappointed

They don't need to be from the same company, just have to be 9600's.
