    What the hell is that? Download radclocker or rage3dtweak and raise the core up like 5mhz at a time until you get artifacts and then lower it a bit until its clear again and then do the same for the memory.

    and higher memory gives you more performance than a higher core

    On every card I've ever worked with (including a 9800), it is.

    Back in the day when memory was slow and bandwidth was the bottleneck that was very true, however times have changed and overclocking the core gives much higher gains than those had from the memory. Try them out in 3DM01 and 3DM03.

    That my friend is a picture of a muscular human being.
    How will i know after reducing mhz, wheres the right point to actually stop? and btw could you also show some images of these artifacts if you have any? that would be much appreciated.

    We can do without stupid pic's in the tech forums (go to the Beer Garden if ya want to post those) so that those on dailup can get a better load up time. ;)

    Artifacts are little white random dots (for want of a better description) but usually if ya follow the 5MHz rule then once ya get them then just drop back 5MHz.

    so basically once seen the artifacts reduce 5 mhz then i pause there, am i correct?
