Aim: To maintain system stability while improving performance.
I have drivers installed.
I tweaked some options in my registry.
I ran 3dmark 2003 (for the flanging last time it is not 2k3) and I scored 500 points higher.
I then decided to run a game.
My ingame framerates were 50fps higher than previously.
Conclusion: I have found no system instabilities and my framerate washed my room.
