    you cannot overclock a video card from the mobo's bios, you can try using Atitool or RivaTuner or flash the video card's firmware.

    finally got rivatuner to work. Bumped the core clock up to 602Mhz, couldnt do a great deal with the memory clock tho, only managed to get it up to 370Mhz from 350 :S

    My 3dmark 06 score went up nearly 500 points as a result :D

    I have an 8800gts and was wondering how to do this as well. And how would ATI tool work with a nVidia card? ANy help would be greatly appreciated.

    Its supposed to work. Don't own any recent nVidia cards though.

    Hey. I think Atitool is a part of Riva Tuner. You can overclock both nVidia and ATI cards. Download Rivatuner 2.0 and check it out. Hope this helps

    Get Riva-Tuner. You will be able to OC fine with that.

    thats why I posted the question about already having Riva-Tuner and not being able to know where to start with it. I am running Vista and from doing some research on the net, it appears that the Riva Package does not like using Vista as there is some issues with the Nvidia graphics driver that vista uses. Anyone tried with Vista and also if so and its works - would someone be able to tell me what I need to do as I just cant get my head around where to start?

    Thanks

    Thanks
