Hacking Your Graphics Card

With GeForce 8800 GT availability issues, other manufacturers are selling this popular video card with different clock speeds and prices. To save a buck or two, and possibly squeeze out some extra performance, ExtremeTech has a helpful primer on overclocking your 8800 GT with some very easy hacks.

If you go into this with the right mindset, you can end up with a card that's just as good as those pricey overclocked ones. But remember that you won't be able to return the card for repair if something goes wrong. If that thought gives you the willies, we recommend paying a few bucks more for a factory overclocked card.

In the bad old days, you'd buy a video card that ran at some standard clock frequency. The core clock was the core clock, the memory clock was the memory clock, and that was that.

Um, I suppose they forgot the pencil trick "back in the bad old days." The older cards were a LOT more overclockable!
