For those in the know...

Is there much to be gained from overclocking a GeFor :sol:  ce 8600GT (assuming it can be done)?

And if so, how would I go about it?

Thanks in advance...

Well its all relative but yes it would be worth it i would say, as long as you dont expect it to OC like say a 460 does. It will help a bit but it wont make a huge differance like putting it in a differant performance bracket or anything like that.

There are online guides and the pictures will help you get a better idea than reading a wall of text so i suggest you look for a decent guide online.

It's free so of course it's worth it.
