    Hi guys this is snowfoe, here is my first post so here i go! :D


    Here is my question is there any way that you can get more out of your graphics card say when your using heavy graphical applications like gaming, videos etc. by maybe entering some commands into terminal or the computers console? I dont know very much about computers so forgive me if this is a stupid question.

    Oh and by the way just to let yall know my Macbook Pro has a
    NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT!:D:D

    Yes, but you can overheat it. Don't overclock it if you cannot afford a replacement.

    So the answer is basically no, especially for a laptop.

    You can run your games at lower resolution or quality for faster framerates.
