    Ok I overclocked my Ati 9600 XT to 317/340. Default was 250/275. Good scores in 3Dmark; 11230 3DMark 01, and 3981 3Dmark03. So i was just looking for a tool to watch the temps. of my card. Anyone know of a good tool for Ati cards?:hammer:

    In order to look at video card temps, you need a probe because the video card does not have heat sensors like the cpu and mobo. So you have to look for a temperature reader.
    CPU: Opteron 165 @ 311x9 - 2817.8 mhz - 1.47v
    Mobo: Abit KN8-SLI
    RAM: 2x512 Crucial Ballistic Tracers500 @ 202 mhz 2-2-2-5 T1
    GFX: Asus EAX1950pro @ 648/1408
    PSU: Thermaltake 500w
    SC: Audigy 2 zs
    LCD: 22' Samsung 225bw
    Speakers: Klipsch ProMedia 5.1 Ultra

    These are the speeds (in MHz) of the GPU (graphical processing unit) and the memory on the video card.

    Let me quallify my answer: On stock cards: Yes. But when you get into overclocking your video card it gets a little more complicated. As a general rule, when overclocking video cards, or your MB or RAM, you want to set them back a few notches from max performance for stability. I suggest you read much more on this topic through these forums before trying to overclock your vid card. I'm really a n00b to it as my current mobo doesn't support OC well. ATi bundles an overclocking utility with it's newer cards. If you overclock your vid card too much you can get artifacts or even ruin the card
