My EVGA GTX 560-Ti is has its memory factory-overclocked at 2106 MHz. I've been pushing my Core Clock as far as I can, but I haven't really touched the Memory Clock. But do I need to?

I'll play something texture-heavy like Crysis 2 every so often. Does a game like that benefit from a higher memory clock?

No, not really. I can't seem to find a correlation between faster memory speed in general and faster performance, because for some reason, it doesn't really do much. It may make certain streaming operations go smoother, but that's about it.

Sounds good. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing out on any extra performance by being lazy.

Thanks!
