Default Burning in GFX card using 3DMark

Hello,

I will be getting a X1800XT 512mb or a 7800GTX256mb and i was told i should burn it in for better overclocks.

Someone said i should run 3DMark05 constantly for a day or 2.
How do you get 3DMark to run on an infinate loop?, i definatley dont wanna sit at my computer clicking the test button every 10 mins.

when you open 3dmark05 select the change tab in the settings area. There is a loop section in there. Just enter the number times youw ant it to run. Good luck
