2 Questions for you guys...

1. In Everest it reports that my Graphics card is using up to 512mbs of memory and it of course has 320mbs onboard.
So, the question is...Since it's sharing some of the memory from my system, would overclocking my memory help the performance of the card?

2. Would increasing the frequency of the PCI-E bus speed help with bandwidth throughput of the card, or would it just be putting unnecessary stress on the PCI-E bus...
Thanks.

It's a glitch in everest, shows the same with my 320MB card, but shows right with a 256 or 512 card.

Increasing the PCI-E frequency can be helpful and does not hurt anything as long as it is within reason. It doesn't add much in the way of performance simply because we can not supply enough data to max out the available bandwidth as is. Overclock just for the sake of the hobby and see what you can get out of each and every component on your system. Outside of CPU and GPU clocks there are only small improvements to be found, things will only show up in specailized benchmarks.
