Default OCing my 7600GT

first off, here's the link for my Graphics Card
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150182

anyways i've OCed my processor and ram and i'm still getting really good temps in my case so i'm thinking about OCing my GPU.

I've never OCed a GPU before so i literally know nothing about it. I'm doing research on it right now and i just wanted to ask you guys how you think i should go about doing it (program, how far...etc) because i won't be able to differentiate between which methods will be best.

thanks guys.

A lot of time's, the chipset or card manufacturer for your card will have an overclocking utility for your card. I recommend those over third party programs as they are generally safer. Most of the time, when using the programs from the manufacturer, they won't let you go to extreme to where you'll kill your card. Hope that helps some.

No problem. If you have any further questions, I'll answer them to the best of my ability, as I'm sure everyone else here would.
