Now why would a person spend all his time doing software Overclocks i dont know but like i said i dont think his best field is Overclocking.

jakup hard to say since i didnt bench the card prior to oveclocking the shaders from 1250 to 1500. If anyone else wants to OC the shaders make sure you bench it first
So people that use software to overclock are newbies? I don't follow your logic. Many, if not most, of us here use software (such as coolbits, rivatuner, ATITool, etc) to overclock their video cards. And we're not newbies.

BIOS overclocking a CPU is a different story, as the settings are easily adjustible. Repeatedly flashing my video card's BIOS to overclock it seems ridiculous.

Perhaps I'm misreading something in your post. But I think you should check into the person you're talking about before making such a statement.
