The easiest way would be to use ATITOOL you can download version 0.24..here.

It is a simple to use overclocking software program perfect for new and old alike.

Is that card the PCI-E version or AGP? I have the X1600 Pro 256mb AGP and I can only squeeze an extra 75mhz off the core and 20mhz off the ram, not a very good card for overclocking. But I'm not sure about the PCI-E version. Is that the Pro or the Pro Golden? If it's the golden that's in a whole 'nother league of cards.

3 steps

1. Start>Run> MSCONFIG
- Disable the ATI hotkey poller startup program.

2. Download ATI tool.

3. Adjust gpu/mem clocks in small incriments, and scan for artifacts.
- Your card will also have adjustable voltages to play with, just don't turn the core up too much.
