Help for a First Time Overclocking!

Hey guys I'm rather new to the computer game. I've just got a bare-bones computer that needs heaps of upgrading. I'm confident in my ability to do the adding and removing of hardware. Anyways I just bought a new GPU it is a ASUS GeForce® GTX 750 TI. Ive got it running but I'm not seeing any difference in performance and would like to try and Overclock this to get my money's worth. I was previously using a gigabyte gtx 650 ti. Really it's my cpu and motherboard that's slowing my computer down. I'd really appreciate some help, here are the specs of my comp.

GPU: ASUS GeForce® GTX 750 Ti

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-MA780G-UD3H

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955

Ram:8.00GB Dual-Channel DDR2 @ 401MHz (6-6-6-18)

and my current default clock are as follows:

Current GPU Clock 1071 MHz
Current Memory Clock 2700 MHz
Current Shader Clock 2700 MHz
Voltage 0.962 V
Technology 28 nm
Bus Interface PCI Express x16

I know I'm running ancient DDR2 and I really need to upgrade my Motherboard. Thanks for any help you guys can give!

  1. Well the GPU upgrade isnt really that big of a difference if any at all. What is the OC you want?

    Howdy!
    I'd like to OC the gpu, the performance with newer games is really slow. I don't mind low settings, I just want to raise my fps when playing. I think this could be helped with a bit more juice to the gpu.

  3. Unfortuanatly the 750ti wasn't much of an upgrade over the older 650ti. Its big gain was on lower power draw. The 1050 or 1050ti would have been a good upgrade.

    Try a 1150 Core Clock, go there gradually if it becomes not stable while benching it with a benchmarker try to up the voltage but do not go over 1.1 (At least I wouldn't)
