I don't think that you'd get any problems with overclocking. But then again, I've never done it before
Don't worry mate. Nothing too turrible should happen. I mean, the space time continuum might melt and the fabrics of our universe might unfold, but who cares! You'll have a dedicated PhysX card while playing Crysis!!!

Wish me luck!
I have my fan at a constant 100%. Drowns out the annoying noise of my intake fan falling apart.
GL mate. Although you won't be needing it

Yes, I guess that is what matters...
I think my GPU likes to overclock!
I've found my maximum GPU clock to be 825 mhz (after learning I had to let my video card rest awhile before testing with FurMark again; and I could keep going further!). Is that really good?
I'll have to continue with adjusting the shaders (currently at 2007, which I find to be really big already) as well as memory tomorrow!
As far as I know, my maximum temperature with fans at 80% is around 57 degrees. I worry I might not be running FurMark for long enough, but right now I don't have that much time to continue. I think I could safely reduce the fan speed to about 50% (about the same loudness as the rest of my system, which is quite loud when someone like you might think of it but I don't mind) while still receiving adequate temperatures and stability
Thanks to all of you for your help!

I've found my maximum GPU clock to be 820mhz... at 825, I get a few artifacts here and there, scarcely, but visibly. Is that really good?

Run furmark for at least 15 minutes.
Then just wait for the temps to stop increasing.
After the temps stay roughly the same (1-5 degrees up or down) for rougly 5-10 minutes, you should be good.
At least, that's what I go by for my clocks
Runs MW2 stable enough at least. No artifacts.

Ah, I see. I'll have enough time to do that tomorrow, and I can still run other non-GFX-demanding PC tasks while it works.
Anyways, thanks, and I can keep you updated if I have any problems, etc. if you want.

Well eVGA Precision didn't apply my overclocked settings during the next startup, so I checked "Apply at Windows startup" and I'm hoping it works. I might just have that 8400 in my computer today because my dad will be purchasing a 4550 today for the other [media centre] computer. Is it possible to overclock a PhysX card..? If so, how would I go about and test it... or should I find the maximum overclock while it is still plugged in as a main video card, lol

My 8400GS is from EVGA (256MB) and is a G86

You can save profiles in EVGA Precision as well.
Just click on that button that's to the right of the 'Apply' button and check out all the nifty things in there. There's also an on screen display option, so you can see your temps while in game

I'm pretty sure you'd be able to OC a PhysX card. Not sure if it'd do you any good (not entirely sure as to how PhysX works exactly. Still need to do my research).

PhysX offloads the physics processing in a game (e.g. breaking glass) from a CPU to either the single GPU or a dedicated PhysX GPU (both improve performance, the latter is the best).
I've been into that properties window before but I can't figure out how to set the actual profiles... I'm only able to set the shortcut keys xD

No I know how PhysX works, I just don't know exactly if you'd see a ginormous increase from overclocking. Come to think of it, I suppose you would.
Gah running off NO SLEEP is not good for the thought processes.

And to set the profiles:
I believe you just right click the number

*right clicks* *tries right click again* *and again* *and again...* *again...*
Nope, that doesn't work
And apparently, Crysis doesn't support PhysX... Oh well, at least I have a really powerful CPU [that I use for video encoding] to make up for that
Also, I've been reading lately and it seems that dedicated PhysX [with Ageia's PPU at least] is not supported in Windows 7... I can't figure out if this is true or not
