Not worth OCing that budget conusmer card. That is not a gamer card. NO need to OC, u wont see any difference. Instead of waisting you time like this, just buy a new 9800 GT ,, then youll be set..

same advice,I would go for a new card,since I own a 8500gt and I am running it at the moment.Currently repairing a 8800gtx,what a change it will be . I can run new games with the 8500gt,at 800x600,or 1024x768 with low details,but quite fluently.At least I can play these games .But really,,try to get something better,at least from 8600.

create a negative pressure in your case if you lack teh fan power to blow across everything. thats what I did on myh small mAXT case. 2 fans at 12volts, rear intake at 5volts, and teh cpu fan riding 5-7volts depending on usage

my OC'd 6600 never goes north of 60C even at 560/640 (stock 450/532)
