Hey guys, I have heard when OCing the ram on your video card, you go until you see artifacts, and then back down say 10mhz. What about with the core clock speed though? I have mine up to 252mhz from stock 225mhz - Running a GeFroce4 Ti4200 / 128-bit / 128megs of ram. The ram was stock 446mhz and I am running right now at 505mhz. I am using this to cool the card http://www.frozencpu.com/cgi-bin/frozencpu/slf-02.html?id=4LeiSsiq

I just don't know how to tell if I have the clock to high, or if I can indeed pump it up a few more mhzs. Any suggestions would be helpful, thanks a ton in advance. =)

One way to tell is to run graphics intensive games such as Far Cry and UT2k4 and experiment with the visual quality a bit. If you experience no probs there, and you double check your card isnt running too hot, you should be fine. Also, you can try a test program such as 3dMark or PcMark as an alternative to playing those games. If you're running your comp at max visual setttings with no bad side effects(artifacts, melting vid card, etc.), you are OK. By the way, although the Nvidia OC is ok, Powerstrip is much better. I would definitely get it if you do not have it yet.
