This new graphics card I got to process Seti@home work has some settings I'm not familiar with such as Processor Clock and Memory Clock. Right now its set at the default settings of 1903 for Processor and 2178 for Memory are these settings correct for Seti@Home?

Those are just your GPU speed and RAM speed respectively.

There are no "wrong" settings for SETI@Home, just as there are no "wrong" CPU speeds. Those settings are there for overclockers who want to tweak and get more performance.

Of course, overclocking usually voids your warranty, so proceed with caution.

Will raising the values make the GPU crank out more completed work? or just melt my video card. : /

Yes, it will help your GPU get through work faster at the risk of frying your GPU if you don't watch your temps.

Ok. Thanks. It is running 4 times faster than my old card so this will do till I do another upgrade. :)
