Its as simple as downloading the program, and pulling the slider up.. but don't get selfish about overclocking or you fry the thing...

Most overclockers use the Overclocked/Superclocked cards as references to get where their card to..

Ya like I said, Quad scaling sucks from both AMD and nVidia.. always have and will for a good bit... so the one card alternative is a good idea (HD 4850X2 + 4850 or HD 4870X2 + HD 4870)

So I recommend only getting one, or if you have to Crossfire, get the 1 core version of that card

That's what I said.. Will the 4850x2 run at 8x, or 4x, or both? And nobody ever answered my question about Crossing a 4850 with a 4870...
