Testing:

To effectively test the Gigabyte Radeon HD 2400 XT video card, I am going to run it through a series of gaming benchmarks to see how well it scores. I will also compare it to another ATI HD card, the PowerColor HD 3450, to see how it compares to a similar card, in terms of speed and performance. All hardware will be run at their stock speeds, to ensure no variables will contaminate the scores and both cards will be run on the exact same setup. The only changes will be to the HD 2400 XT card itself during the overclocking phase described below.

Overclocked settings:

To overclock the Gigabyte Radeon HD 2400 XT, I went in to the overdrive section of the Catalyst Control Center. To my surprise, any time I tried to raise either the memory or GPU clocks and test them, they automatically defaulted to the stock speeds. I was scratching my head and tried another card and used the CCC again and it worked. Since it had to be the HD 2400 XT not allowing the overclock, I opened RivaTuner and tried again to raise the clock speeds. This time it worked. I was able to raise the clock speeds to 800MHz on the GPU and 500MHz on the memory, stable, using RivaTuner. Anything over those, I started to get freezing and blue screens, so the overclocking benchmarks will be run at 800/500MHz speeds.
