    Question about Overclocking your graphics card and pc games.

    When you first start most pc games the first thing it does is scan your hardware and then sets the graphics to the appropriate level. When it comes to your graphics card does it take into account your current Core clock mhz and memory clock mhz. Or does it just look at what your graphics card is and compares it to a list of graphics cards and just sets the settings based on how good they think your card is?

    Re: Question about Overclocking your graphics card and pc games.

    I'm going to say it doesn't give a crap about what your clocking in at, most games i recall have a list, a whats hot and what should be shot of gfx cards, if you will.

    My card for example when stock is a piece of crap that often gets me defaulted to min settings, it can however quite happily dance at high medium on most games with 100% fan and maximum software clocking (msi afterburner, safer then flashing).

    One example is witcher 2, my card isn't supported (auto-default to min settings) because its apparently that bad as far as i know, i play on medium, feels good man.

    Most start at default settings not caring about what you have.

    it takes your current cpu clock set which most time its under clocked. Which mean you can increase the setting a little bit more.

    Cpu clock because bad cpu can bottleneck a good gpu.

    ^^^Beat me too it.

    Overclocking is not something to do with no knowledge, IMO.
