Overclocking is tuning your card's clocks up so they work faster, providing better performance in games. This is a too long story for me to write in a single post, but there are countless tutorials on the Internet. Unless you mess with card's voltages it's rather safe for your comp.

I don't think FC2 will go any much faster on your card, but let's try the overclocking I mentioned.

Get the RivaTuner from my signature. Install, run it. Click the triangle button in the ForceWare detected area, next System settings. You'll see 3 sliders. Those adjust frequencies of your GPU. Increase them step-by-step, slowly (10-20MHz), and run a benchmark or a very demanding game and test for a few minutes if it's stable. If it hangs up or you'll see any graphic artifacts, you should revert to the previous setting. Also, download GPU-Z and monitor your temperatures. GPU temperature generally shouldn't go over 90 Celsius degrees, but it can withstand even 30 degrees more without any harm.
