Overclocking X1950XT Series?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have an X1950XT Graphics card running on stock, with it's stock cooler, which looks pretty funky as well (was thinking of putting LED lights under the red plastic to jazz it up a bit).

I wanted to overclock it, to get more performance in games such as Fallout: New Vegas. It's plays at a rather sombre 40-50FPS.

I wanted to know was probably the best software and benchmarking utilities to use, as well as the best way to overclock for this particular series of cards.

I'm not sure if MSI Afterburner supports the x19xx series of Ati but it's worth a shot. CCC also supports overclocking through its Overdrive feature so might want to try that out as well.

As for benchmarking, furmark and 3dmark are what I'll use to test stability and fps improvements.
