    I have an idea of what they do, but I have no idea where to set them. I had the program find my max mem and core, but there wasn't any really any increase in quality or FPS (only like 2 fps difference). I think that changing these settings will greatly help, but i really don't want to crash my card or computer. Could someone familiar with this program help me choose the appropriate settings?

    You're right, most overclocks really don't offer too much benefit in gameplay. By how much did ATITool increase the core and memory speeds?

    Do you have the latest ATI drivers and ATI's Overdrive turned off?

    Having the latest ATI drivers can really benefit the card quite a bit.

    If you are going to OC your video card you had better read up on it. Using ATI tool without knowing what it does and can do is asking for trouble.

    Check the video forums at www.extremeoverclocking.com

    No need to ever go there for anything else. We are much better at everything else, but some of these guys know their stuff.

    Another place that is pretty informative is www.ocfaq.com

    Be advised they curse like drunken sailors on that forum.
