There's a sticky in this forum with some links in it. Follow some of those through; they're usually among the list of recommendations I'll give when looking to improve performance via software tweaks.

The Omega Drivers are still only the "61.77" Drivers nVidia's drivers are at "66.93". The latest nVidia drivers combined with the nVidia clocking utility will increase performance of Hardware Pixel Shader games.

The Omega drivers does have a clocking utility built-in. It however is just a tweaked version of the nVidia drivers 61.77.

They do increase performance, over the 61.77 default drivers, unless you install the quality version, which is slower, but looks better than the 61.77 drivers.

Are you talking about Coolbits when you mention the built-in Detonator overclocking tool, M_u?

Apparently so...

The Omega Drivers have it enabled in the registry by default. I didn't even know it existed, much less how to enable in the default nVidia drivers.

OC3dmark Coolbits FAQ page.

Thanks C38368, now I know what it is called.

Welcome. It's not terribly well known, but it is to nVidia cards what ATITool is to ATI cards.
