I believe when you need to overclock it is the perfect time upgrade. while unlocking is a normal thing. So stay where you are or buy a new GPU. imHO.

GPUs are quite cheap these days. You should sell yours for around 4k and get a new one. For around 8k, you should be able to find used AMD HD4850. Will be great if you get HIS ICEq 4 edition. Good luck.

thanx for ur help but how can i sell this card in 4k coz i’ve got the 256 mb version even 512 mb version would not cost over 3k u know galaxy was selling this card in 1.8k only :)

na na na na! I'm not suggesting you to change the card. I'm just sharing my view. You have a perfect thing in your hand if it plays all the games you need.

The results are quite amazing after unlocking, i wish there was some thing like that in GTS450! B)
