I want to overclock my video card...how?

I went into bios settings and set the voltage to +1. I have heared of overclocking by using techniques with the power supply. Are there any Comp. wizzes out there?

    Go to Guru0f3D.com and download these two programs: Riva Tuner and Coolbits. Load one or the other. Riva Tuner checks your system registry and makes tweaks to it to over clock your video card. It will also make sure your AGP is set correctly. Coolbits loads into your system registry as well but you access it through your Nvidia advanced display properties. There you will see two new setting you had not seen before you loaded coolbits. You will see an AGP control tab and a overclocker tab.

    Next, never and I mean never toy with your power supply unless of course you want to know want high voltage feels like to run through your body. I think what you were meaning is to adjust your computers processor voltage. This is in your computers BIOS not your video cards BIOS. This kind of stuff is for the pros who know what they are doing and besides you want to over clock your video card not your computers processor. Those two programs I told you about are relatively harmless but I would still spend a little time reading up on this as you can burn up your video card if you are not careful. Hope I helped and good luck.

    No one is going to be able to help you until you give detailed specs of your machine and video card. Increasing voltage to things you don't know about is asking for it to burn up. There are many forums that you can go to that have over clocking information and guides.
