Default OCing GTX570

I bought this video card: NCIX.com - Buy EVGA GeForce GTX 570 HD Fermi 732MHZ 1280MB GDDR5 2XDVI HDMI DisplayPort PCI-E Video Card - eVGA - 012-P3-1571-KR - in Canada and I wanted to know what tools should I use to make it as fast or faster than this video card: NCIX.com - Buy EVGA GeForce GTX 570 Superclocked Fermi 797MHZ 1280MB GDDR5 2XDVI Mini-HDMI PCI-E Video Card - eVGA - 012-P3-1572-AR - in Canada . Also will I gain a noticeable performance by OCing this card? I just bought it and games are flying on it, but I would like to know for future reference.

In msi afterburner just turn the voltage to 1087 (1.1v) and start overclocking, and usually you can run furmark to make sure you don't go to far with the overclock and the heat doesn't get ridiculous. Try using posted overclocks and underclock them by 10 percent because all cards aren't built exactly the same. Then just keep upping the clocks. The only game where you might notice a increase in fps would be metro 2033 on the highest settings but tbh its not really needed I just keep my card on a small overclock all the time, and the massive overclock is only needed for benching.
