    Do a search on Nvidia's site for geforce_overclock.zip or geforce_overclock.reg.

    does video card have a fan on it, if not get 1 as when you overclock it is going to get hotter & you need it to be cool or will fry it. change settings in small incremments to see if stable or not

    yeah its got a fan not a big one like on processor it had a choice of optimal settings so i tried it and it tests it for you it is now gpu frequency 225.00 mhz and memory bus speed gpu 2x 248.63mhz i dont know if it will make a difference but any thing is better than nothing hey

    see if can put a slot fan beside the video card to assist in cooling the card down & make certain no dust on the card or heatsink fan

    have a fan or 2 if case is setup that way to pull air in so that the back case fan & psu fan blows it out of the case. have a slot fan by the video card to help keep it cool
