    You have bought a very low end video card. I am wondering if you wanted performance, why buy the low end card?

    If you really really want to attempt to overclock this, download the nvidia system tools software [available on the nvidia site] This will allow you to up the core speed and or memory speed.

    Again I would not hope for much from this card; it is NOT made for serious gaming.

    Then download the nvidia software and have at it.

    Do remember the first rule of overclocking;
    Do not overclock with parts you cannot afford to replace.

    Overclocking the card may net you a 5%~10% increase in performance... depending on how much you can push it.

    This means if you're getting 25fps in MED settings, then you may get it up to 27~28fps. To get higher res & details, a higher end card is required.
