  1. I'm looking to tweak my Gainward GeForce 2 Pro (I know its sad :)) to get a little better quality and speed. I've been looking over at www.guru3d.com and there are two different programs I'm thinking of downloading, but was wondering which one was better or more efficient. The programs are http://www.guru3d.com/nvhardpage/and http://www.guru3d.com/geforcetweakutility/, respectively.

    GTU looks like the more useful program, but I really don't know what alot of the functions do. I don't want to mess anything up, just looking for a little upgrade. Any input on these or any other programs would be much appreciated. Also, any thoughts on some of the functions in GTU would be very helpful!

    Thanks guys!!!

    Out of the two GTU has more features! I've used both of them, but my favorite is RIVA Tuner. I actually had some problems with GTU, and i had to re-install my GPU drivers (although that could have just been me):rolleyes:
    NvHard page has got one useful thing which you should download it for.....you can enable a few more features in the regular program which you get with the Detonators i.e. Control Panel, Display, Settings, Advanced! These extra features include, the clock frequencies tab, and the ability to turn off VSync in Diret 3D.

    So i would reccomend you get NvHard page and just activate "Coolbits", and get RivaTuner to tweak your card

    Laterz.........Cucumber;)

    The next version of my tweak program should have at least some of this features, if any of you would like to give it a try, it also supports tweaking of some OS features and has a system information page.

    Read this thread http://www.3dspotlight.com/vb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=691 for more details.

    The next version should be out in a week or so and the more people I can get to test this program, and make suggestions, the better it will become.

    I'd go with RivaTuner. Course I would prefer NVmax, but that's dead now so RivaTuner's the next best thing & I'm updating the GeForce guide for that now.

    Does RivaTuner work for all GeForce cards???

    Edit: Nevermind, I answered my own question :)
