This is a good graphics card overclocking tool. It's super simple. Just slide the bar in little increments until you can make the card as powerful as you can get it without it being unstable. http://www.nvidia.com/object/ntune_5.05.54.00.html

The latest ATI driver/software package should have an overclocking utility built in.

You could also use ATITool and RivaTuner. They also work on Nvidia cards too.

I like EVGA's precision tool. I don't know if it works on non-EVGA cards.

Start with a single clock, so not try to overclock the memory and the core at the same time.
For example, start with the core clock, increase by 10MHz, run Furmark for a minute or so, if it's fine, increase another 10MHz. Continue this process with the core clock until Furmark starts getting artifacts, back off 10MHz and test again. This time, do a longer stability run of 20 min or so. You can use Furmark or graphically intensive game to pass the time quicker. If it's stable, move onto the memory clock and repeat the process.
