I had heard that 5500 Overclocked can be a decent video card, so I will going to overclock it, I was thinking about raising carefully and slowly my 3D clock and memory clock to 330/450 at least, but I have interrogative, my AGP clock is at 66mhz, I know that the AGP is crussial in 3D, so should I oc it too? and for how much...

You should never mess with the AGP slots frequency..it should always really be left at 66mhz..Anyhigher or anylower can actually cause damage to your card and or your AGP slot...It is fine to OC the actual card nameely the Clock speed and Memory speed but dont touch the AGP slot Frequency.

Personally I have clocked both 2d and 3d so I can keep an eye on the temps. But if you use it for playing games you only need to adjust the 3d performance.

You will see a more noticeable improvement If you oc the 3D CLOCK but oc'ing th 2D clock wont hurt and will increase performance so why not.
