    overclocking is basically increasing the core and/or memory speeds on a video card to increase performance

    you can do it with a software app or reg tweak normally

    because you're stressing the card more, you may void the warranty on the card

    overclocking can yield good performance increases when done in moderation, however, if you do it too much, you could permanently damage the video card

    overclocking should work on any card

    have a look here
    it seems they had trouble overclocking a certain part of the fx5200

    however, to overclock, you should download an app like RivaTuner

    so overclocking enhances the memory on the video card, but can damage the card? cuz i bought mine from a oem comp manufacturer, and i have a 3 year warrenty. if it breaks, they will replace it. but it can damage the card? and how do u do it, just follow onscreen instructions? is there a guide or something?

    you can do damage to the card
    if the manufacturers find out you&#39;ve tried to verclock the card, they may not replace it under warranty

    the actual overclocking process is fairly simple, there is more info at the link adamp2p provided here

    i bought the comp from www.ibuypower.com. they buy oem parts and sell prebuild pcs with the oem parts. i think that if i say that the video card got messed up, they might be too dumb to know that it&#39;s overclocked, unless there&#39;s a way to tell.

    When you overclock the card it gets EXTREMILY HOT so if the card is burned is because of Overclocking or that you put the card in the oven&#33;&#33;

    THats an easy way to know&#33;
