Ananan September 14, 2007 7:43:47 PM ATI tool works as well. Very user friendly in finding your card's OCing potential. Then you save it as an OCed gaming profile. It only takes 2 clicks to get into.

It's true about Ati Tool too, its a very friendly app, not as complete as Rivatuner, but very good. I can't use it because its driver is not signed, and Vista 64 doesn't accept it. Rivatuner works like a charm. tdank September 14, 2007 8:40:58 PM nTune will allow you to do it as well. You can actually set up profiles for specific games settings if I remember correctly. tdank September 14, 2007 8:46:54 PM Why do you say that? I have always been pleased with it. plguzman September 14, 2007 8:47:50 PM nTune sucks managing profiles. Rivatuner FTW. In my G15 the monitoring works like a charm. ryanthesav September 14, 2007 9:25:48 PM thanx guys...u are all great!!!
