"turning up video cards"

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I've recently heard people say to "turn up their video cards". Does this mean overclocking or making the hardware acceleration to full, because I've been trying to get performance out of my video card and it's hardware acceleration is switched to full in the device manager?

Any ideas?

Overclocking, but it could be stuff like the PCI-e link

I have a GeForce 5500 FX 256 MB video memory card, and it isn't overclocked. So if I was to turn this card up would I need certain programs or bios options to gain more memory out of it or speed?

Well lets assume what you have heard is overclocking, not turning up (that confuses people here, as its not turnitup.net )

Use overclocking programs such as Coolbits/RivaTuner to help OC with ease. Unless somebody knows that your card isn't suported ofr overclocking, in which case nothing can be done

If you can OC, you must OC

They might just mean turning video options up in games to give better graphics
