    Overclocking graphics card is pointless, it gives 10% speed difference at best, and for WoW less than 5%

    What's your exact specs? Could be your PC is just too old to run WoW properly.

    Trolling should be.

    Your CPU is too slow for WoW, that makes raid suck. 2GB of RAM sucks in pretty much everything possible.

    But yeah, the graphics card is bad and weakest link for all non-WoW games. Overclocking the card is just pointless, the performance gain from it is rather small. If some game crawls at 5fps today, you can maybe OC it to 6-7fps, but that's about it.

    The problem for games other than WoW is that you're using a 4 year old mobile graphics card. New graphics cards often have problems in games, let alone something that's 4-5 generations old.

    You dont need a genius to download a "GPU managment program" and slide some sliders 50mhz higher
    (50 was just an example. Dont do so with your card)

    Firstly, wow is a very cpu orientated game, so currently your cpu is perfectly fine for it, I was running a p4 3.2ghz at almost all setting on high and got 30fps.
    Secondly, your graphics card is very outdated, and that will hold you back greatly, your graphics card is in a sense bottlenecking your cpu.
    Thirdly, because of the age of your graphics card, any overclock will not make much of a difference to your frame rates.

    My advice is that you should save up some money and buy a new graphics card. I would personally recommend a 4870 or 5770 so that there is no bottle neck in your system. Your currently graphics card may just about perform now but when cata comes out it will be too slow for it.

    The problem is, I think this is a laptop. He won't be able to upgrade ANYTHING. The T7200 and GPU are both mobile versions, so I wouldn't recommend overclocking anything. Laptops have cooling problems as is, more heat is going to be a bad thing.
