Default Overclock Graphics

I currently have a

NVidia Geforce 9400GT

And i was looking through the bios randomly the other day and saw that the "PCIE OVERCLOCKING" was set to "AUTO"

So i went to change it and it came up with this

100
101
102
103
e.t.c (up to 9 or 10)
Does this mean i can overclock my card?
More info about card

I wouldnt mind overclocking it but would not like any damage or added heat and would there be much difference?

Am currently playing quite a few games so would this help at all

I've seen elsewhere that increasing the PCI-E frequency results in very little increase in performance and a big increase can kill your card.

You need an application like RivaTuner that will give you access to the graphics cards, Core, Memory and Shader clocks.

You then adjust these to overclock the graphics card.

Does Afterburner work with Nvidia cards?

Also, increasing PCIE frequency can result in instablilty.

Videocard overclocking is really easy though. You raise the clock speed a bit, play games or run benchmarks, raise again if no artifacts, BSODs, etc.

You could and you can get system instability among other things.

There really isn't much of a point overclocking that card. You will see very little performance increase. Maybe one frame.
