I just posted this under video and then realised there was a specific
forum for nvidia cards...oops...anyways,

Hi I'm still fairly new to these forums so please go easy on me,

I currently have a 64MB Geforce 4 MX440 running in my system, and i
have some software that will allow me to change its Clock frequency
and memory frequency of some sort...

Can someone please tell me if it is safe to just amp up both of the
settings without worry, or is there specific settings I need to
know?

Also how much of a difference will it make?

It isn't 100% safe. You're running it above spec which means it also
runs hotter.

Not very much on a MX440.

Overclocking an MX440 is like giving a moped more power. It'll technically
be faster, but will you notice, and will it make any difference? Not
really.

That really didn't answer their question...

To the OP, it's really just trial and error. If you are using rivatuner,
use the low level overclocking, I've encountered many problems using the
driver level option. I got my gf4 mx with 128mb up to 310 core and 460
mem without any consequences. I play nfsu2 in high detail and it runs
really nice.

Try upping both a bit at a time, and test for stability.

Forgot to mention, it will make a marginal difference. If you had a game
that stuttered on video slightly, it might remedy it, but don't put your
hopes on making something that looks like a slideshow now run smooth
like an $800 card.
