Default Basic overclocking questions...AMD/Nvidia

okay got a AMD 64 bit 3000+ and a MSI 6600GT...

I recently added a Zalman heatsink/fan on my CPU with a 80mm fan and it works great...dont have anything on my 6600GT though.

The questions I have are as follows:

- Is there any way to overclock the 3000+ past 2000 MhZ or 223 MhZ (Internal) without damaging the CPU

- How exactly do you overclock a video card? Do you need a VGA heatsink?

- What speeds do you set, without damaging the card or GPU, for the 2D and 3D Core Clock and the Memory Clock under the MSI Clock utility, or should I just use the D.O.T? Private / Sergeant / Captain ETC...

Any help would be appreciated

oc a gfx card, use software. No nothing is really required. You can use a pci exhaust fan though. if you really wnat arctic cooling sells gfx card coolers.

Set whatever as long as theres no artifacting, go in 5-10 mhz increments.
