Default Worth Overclocking? And How?

I have an Nvidia GeForce 5200 FX, The rest of my system is in my sig. Is this worth overclocking? and if so, how do i overclock it? i was overclocking it a while ago, but i recently reformatted and, when i right click on desktop, go to nvidia display, and click my monitor, there isnt the overclocking option in the nvidia program screen, which there used to be. Do i not have the correct drivers or what? Advice needed plz.

Worth it? You wont see a huge gain. The 5200 is a rather weak card. If you can afford to replace it if you accidentally fry it, then go ahead.

if you got the warranty the go for it. That card sux so you wont get much outa it. Google coolbits2 and DL it. that will put the clockfrequecies back under there like you where looking for.

I had a 5200 on my old rig. I bumped it up 3mhz and got artifacts. Very sucky card. Had decent cooling on it, too.
