I think the safest way of orverclocking the PCI-E ports or AGP is to run the voltage at stock, and slowly notch it up. I'm not sure, but that seems the safest way. Or I could just be paranoid.

As you can see in my sig, I'm still in the dark ages with my 2600+ XP and AGP videocard.

But I dont think the CPU and RAM speeds affect the PCI-E clock.
Correct me if I'm wrong.

Even if it did, I really doubt running the clock speed higher than stock would affect the card. Keeping in mind the fact that OCing voids warranties and such ...
