I'm currently looking into doing some soft overclocking on my GPU since its pretty dated at this point and is bottlenecking my whole system. At idle the temp it runs at is around 40 C - 45 C.

Is overclocking a viable option for this GPU? I live in regional Australia so buying new and second hand PC hardware can be quite difficult and expensive.

Well thoose cards are 'safe' until they pass 80C.Do you know how to overclock?I suggest MSI AFTERBURNER for setting the overclock,and either msi kombustor or unigine heaven for testing the overclock.
