when i try to o/c {auto detec} i only get 410/870. is this low for this card its a BFG geforce fx 5900 128 meg. but when i move the sliders over
manualy i can get up 460/890 or better:D

HOW CAN I GET A HIGHER O/C RATE THAN WHAT IM GETTING 410/869. DOES IT HAVE TO WITH YOUR POWER SUPPLY?
I GET THIS WHEN I USE AUTO DETEC W/ COOL BITS.

How high a card overclocks depends on the specific card you get. One BFG card might overclock higher than another. I had a Sapphire Radeon 9800 Pro. Many reviews got the card up to a 430 MHz core. Mine would do 405 tops. It's luck of the draw.

AND DON'T TYPE IN ALL CAPS - IT'S REALLY ANNOYING AND BAD FORUM ETTIQUITE

Nobody say U can't put FX5900 on a 250W PSU. PSU help u overclock more and also stability~

I got Leadtek FX5900 core @ 520 and Mem @ 985 now on a 350W PSU
