    Drop your memory OC a bit, and jack that core clock up
    You'll get better performance from a higher core clock

    Does that apply to all cards, i.e. like my 7800GTX ?

    A higher core clock will give the most performance increase on any card from what I understand. Memory clock helps but just not at the same level of performance.

    LOL, I missed your post Baron, my bad
    But Skott is correct
    You will always gain more performance from a core OC vs. a memory OC
