Detonator is the name of the Nvidia driver for your Graphics card, you should already have this on you system. On the plus side, overclocking may give you a few extra frames per second in your games (you wont notice) , on the downside, you might fry your G/Card. Instantly.

ive bought a fan for my gfx card so i suppose thats ok (wouldnt it?) so the Detonator is already with my gfx so why do i see on web sites bout OC'ing always refer to the Detonator proggy? so do i need to dload it or do i just only dload the CoolBits?

Detonator is not the standard nVidia driver - this is only up to Version in the case of my own GeForce2 32MB 400MX; the handful of standard nVidia drivers are all backward compatible with GeForce, TNT etc cards.

i think its not worth oc'ing your card, the difference would be very slight as others have suggested previously. are you experimenting on an older card?

well the card is a Winfast GeForce 2 Mx had it bout 2 years or 1 not sure(nothing great) but just seems laggy at time when playing UT2003 and i like to get it to run a bit better but should be soon upgrading to a new Radion 9700 much better than the new nForce(?)
