Default Re: recently had to replace my 6600

well, basically the whole point of flashing to get "better overclocking" is that you're upping the core voltage of your card, which is a good way to fry a card very quick, voltage mods, whether it's a hardware or software mod, will kill your card much more quickly than just overclocking, if i were you, i'd settle for what you have, because overclocking will bring you a framerate delta of only about 5-7 fps at the most when your card is pushed to the bleeding edge, it's not worth it to kill something that fast for that kind of performance.... however if you overclock in moderation, without flashing it'll still help a little, but once again, hardly a difference
