Hi, I've been trying to overclock my video card so that I can improve performance on the Sims 3. I have an ATI Radeon x1250 video card, Catalyst 9.1 and I'm trying to use RivaTuner v2.24. Where it says Driver Settings it has no customize button at all. It says Catalyst 7.4 is detected but I'm not sure if that's a problem because people said online that was normal for it to detect the wrong version. I reinstalled the catalyst software originally because I thought that was the problem and before I reinstalled it, it said it was detecting Catalyst 8.9. I found someone online saying to change a line in the cfg file for another version of RivaTuner but I tried it and it didn't fix the problem. Is there anything else to try?

Thanks,
Lara

" Radeon x1250"

That is onboard video , correct ?
[Either a laptop or deskyop without a actual video card installed ?]

I don't think you're going to be able to OC that.

The problem is onboard video uses system memory.
If you try to OC just the video the video memory needs to be OC'd to keep up.
That isn't possible with onboard video simply because it uses system memory & the video has no actual memory of it's own.

The only possibility of OCing onboard video is if you can OC the CPU which should automatically increase the onboard video/memory in proportion
