Overclocking a video card is a method that can be used to make the card perform at a higher level than what was preset at the factory. With games and multi-media requiring an ever-increasing level of performance from your computer, overclocking your graphics card may gain enough of a performance increase to delay purchase of a new card.Instructions:1. Download and install an nVidia graphics cart utility to overclock the card. One application that can perform this function is NVMax (see Resources).2. Open NVMax and select the icon that appears as a set of cogs. Your computer's nVidia card will appear with a frequency range for setting the speed of the card.3. Change the speed of the nVidia video card by sliding the speed slide bar to the desired speed. Once set to the desired speed select the "OK" button in the application.4. Exit the NVMax application and reboot your computer to check for errors with the Operating System by opening applications that you use every day. If you do not notice any abnormalities, then the video card clock speed will not need to be reset unless you experience overheating problems after prolonged use of the computer.***This topic was moved to this new location by DAK***
