That score ain't that bad considering that system. Here's mine (also have a pretty old system):

hello. i have a ATI radeon X600 and i recently got a ocing prog. The card normally runs at 398mhz-cpu and 250mhz memory. The prog i got allows me to overclock both. I was just wondering how many mhz i could safely overclock them.

I also have an X600, if you are using ATI tool, you can oc to about 486/286 with no problems. You could go higher, but you start getting artifacts in the 90's

Beware if you overclock. Not sure if your cards have fans (my 9600 just had a heat sink) and they dont have temp monitors. Lower end cards could be quite risky to OC. But good luck anyways

ATITool works well with the orignal X-series. Some of the older X800s and such have temp monitors on them but still be careful. Don't wanna fry your GPU!
