Re: Is it worth it to push the 6800GT?
Look at this way, 420 to 450mhz is a 7% increase in speed. If gaming at 30FPS it will give a whopping 2 FPS increase. For me that would be hard to notice, plus if Ram speed doesn't go up, system speed as well, getting the full 7% is probably unlikely, so figure 1 FPS. At 20FPS a 7% increase will give a 1.4 FPS increase. I've had my GT at 1.4v now for 1.5 years and still going strong, I just keep it at 400/1100, it will do 420/1200 but I never use it at that speed for any length of time.
