OVERCLOCKING your graphics card won’t turn it into the latest model, obviously, but it can improve its performance, to make barely playable games run that bit more smoothly. If your PC comes with an AMD or Nvidia graphics chip, MSI Afterburner ( www.msi.com/page/afterburner) has your back.
It works by enabling you to tweak your chip’s clock frequency and voltage, while also giving you control over any onboard fans to help to try to minimize the temperature increase. Better still, there are real-time monitors to show you the effects of your overclock, too. Remember— you risk damaging your graphics card by overclocking, so use with care.
