I'm new to this forum, and overclocking graphics cards, and i couldn't find a good tutorial on the forums here (maybe my searching skills are bad i dont know lol) on how to overclock sucessfully. for reference, my specs are: P4 3.2GHZ (Overclocked to 3.5ghz) ATI Radeon x800 PRO AGP 256mb (Gigabyte Technology) 80gb Internal Hard Drive / 120gb External Hard Drive I have a couple questions though that hopefully you can answer: 1. When im playing games, for example battlefield 2 or Day of Defeat Source, I get a really bad drop in my FPS. I can run the games just fine on high visual settings (I get a nice frame rate) but out of nowhere my fps drops to 5fps for 4-5 seconds (When using all default clock speeds for my CPU and GPU). Does anybody know what's causing this? I've tried everything i could think of to fix it but nothing worked. 2. Should i "flash" the bios of my card to something like an x800 xt pe? And whats the advantages of flashing the bios? and which program would be best?
