Since your card has 128 but memory bus the memory speed is kinda critical, but since it's a mid range card it really depends on your specific scenario (game, resolution, other system components, etc). You can try overclocking the card and it's memory with MSI Afterburner - you should be able to raise both clocks by 10% without increasing the voltage (just remember to set the catalyst power tune to max performance).

It can, but I've never used it, so Afterburner could be my best advice :)
