I have a 6800GS,

standard clocks are 350mhz for core and 1000mhz for memory.

Using Coolbits, I can only increase the core to about 425, and the memory to 1070, otherwise I get artifacts

The best way to make sure is to get a better cooler, though for video cards, these can be hard to fit.

There is a limit though to how much a component can overclock. Its not just heat that matters. There are physical limitations.

If you do mess it up and you get loads of dots etc, and you have to restart, your card won't get damaged. Theres a limit to which the program will go, but its not wise to shove the settings all the way, as your card won't be able to do that.

A good way is to push them up slightly (maybe by about 5mhz) and then test with a benchmark utility, and then push them up some more, until you get some artifacts (weird effects on the screen). You then just push them down again until you get a nice middle overclock.

If you've got selected, 'Set these settings at start up' though, pressing Control if it failed while Windows boots loads the default speeds for you to change them again.

Well, I couldn't tell you. I got 4 GPU's in SLI in one of my PC's and Crossfire in my other one, and they are Top-of-the-Line. Yeah, Coolbits is good to use, read your mobo manual and video card manual too, it will tell you how much you can increase the Mhz at a time.

I just have to comment on your PC's, baiseheise. Those things are AMAZING! Must've cost a bundle, especially with those Asus cards... I've seen them on Newegg! What is it, 800 bucks for one?
