Default 8800gts OC problems, help!

I've seen people OC an 8800gts to atleast 650/975 and sometimes higher, but mine currently is at 617/905 and it fails the test if i move either setting up. Is that simply the highest it can go or should I use a different program to OC (im using ntune now) idle gpu temp is 49c.

Different VGAs, overclocks differently. My EVGA 7600GT can only overclock to 630/770 while b1gapl's XFX 7600GT 610/1300, I think? Well you see where I'm going.

are you sure your video card is 630/770? because the ram is GDDR3, so it should be doubled for the effective speed...i've never seen a video card memory clocked that low since GDDR, even GDDR2 is at like 800mhz

If I went further, it would be getting Artifacts. It's cause my 7600GT is a low-end card.

Wait ... wait! What the heck!

Newegg.com - EVGA 256-P2-N615-TX GeForce 7600GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Supported Video Card - Retail

560MHz core and 1400MHz memory? What's going on here!

Default on my VGA is 560 core and 700 memory.
