I use Rage 3D tweak.

You can get it in the files section.

Just slowly up the memory and core speed until it becomes unstable or starts tearing or showing artifacts, then back it off.

If you want to squeeze every last drop out of it then good cooling is a must. The first step to good cooling is good case cooling. Then maybe some better cooling on the GPU and RAM.

After you have adequate cooling start upping thememory speed til it becomes unstable. Then set it back to stock and start playing with the core speed. Once you have determind the max for both you can try to find the perfect balance.

Max core and max RAM seldom work. Max RAM speed ussualy does more good than max core speed but each card is diferent. You just have to play with it and see what works best for you.

If you have a way to monitor temps, do so. If not you can touch the core HSF and the RAM chips while the card is being stressed. If it feels warm the temps are above body temp. If you cannot touch the chips for more than 3 or 4 seconds then you need better cooling.
