Thanks :D

You can overclock just about any GPU as far as I'm aware. I haven't tried overclocking any of my super old cards, but I'd be surprised if it couldn't be done.

I tried overclocking an old NX8800GTS and afterburner recognized it and let me change frequencies. Couldn't change power settings though.

That makes sense. I'm talking older than that though, the oldest card in my possession is a GeForce4 MX420 AGP. Now if I could overclock that, that would be quite something.

I mean, overclocking has been around long before most of us were even alive. I'd be surprised if you couldn't over clock it. You may have to find old software, but I bet you could do it.

Yeah, I'll give that a try sometime.

Back in the day, it was done with PowerStrip or in the BIOS itself. 

 

Was done via adjusting the AGP or PCI slot itself. Could adjust voltage and frequency of the slot to adjust the clocks or stability

Well belive it or not i actually had a first gen geforce. Yes i said FIRST GEN lol i think the offical name was Geforce 256 but its been a while and there was overclocking in some of not all of the very first drivers. Used to use a slot cooler that down drafted the agp card via a bracket that held 2 80mm fans over the card from on top lol . So in short yeah theres always a way and someone out there willing to do what ever that way is.
