Default Ocing...am I safe?

I have OCed my Geforce 5200 with these clocks:

Default GPU speed: 250MHZ
New Speed: 350MHZ

Default memory speed:320MHZ
New speed: 420MHZ

Now, the thing is: When I bought my Geforce 5200, it never came with a fan. Now, I bought a fan for it...altought the guy said it was useless, but now I'll try overclocking.

Are these settings OK to run or am I at risk of burning my card?

Should be *OK* make sure you have good ventalation to the fan and also look for tearing and such, if you see tearing or artifacts drop the clocks down alittle.

Artifacts are like if your playing a game, youll see like bright purple dots on the walls or somthing, there not always purple though. Just if you see anything out of the ordinary, clock it back 10mhz each.

Well best way to describe it is like blowing at paint with a straw and artifacts are like random black spots ect.
