yeah works same way as CPU. Start upping the speeds its gonna need more voltages but yeah be careful with all that...real easy to fry a component

Actually I asked that same question.. if the higher the cards freqs. are, should it need more power? The answer I got was that it shouldn't be a problem keeping it the same voltage, and in fact giving it more wouldn't matter... But I've never actually tested if giving it a bit more juice would make it more stable at higher freqs, as my card is too hot to push harder than I do during the winter time.. but be careful =/

Make sure you are using good cooling if you plan to overclock.

Most people don't touch the voltage on AGP when overclocking video card.
