Ok i have a intel core 2 quad 4gigs of ram and a glaxaxy 9600gt however mine did not come with the software to overclock the gpu is there another type of soft ware out there that will let me overclock my gpu? If so could someone please give me the link. Also does anyone have any tips when it comes to overclocking a gpu?

yessir. Graphics cards do NOT come with overclocking software...so download ATITOOL (0.26 is the latest version I believe), and Rivatuner. Use Rivatuner to overclock your graphics card (increase in small increments), and use ATItool's "artifact test" to see if your graphics overclock is stable...it is considered 100% stable if it passes the 15-minute ATItool test with no "artifacts", which you will see as small yellow dots. Happy oc'ing!

Better have good GPU cooler, because by default your GPU temp will be around 50degrees. Make sure you download HW Monitor or Speedfan to watch your GPU temps.
