Default First Time OC'ing

OK, I read a lot of posts and this is what I did... I put my CPU at 1.55v and my RAM at 2.1v in BIOS. Then I disabled C1E in BIOS. I used AI Suite with AI Booster and set my CPU at 344.0. I am running PRIME95 25v now and AI Suite shows 3104.67MHz and the temps are 56c CPU and 45c System. My FSB is at 1379.79. and 0345.00 X 09.0. Am I doing it OK?

I can't seem to OC my video card. As soon as I do any increase it freezes. I am using CCC to adjust the voltage. Since I am running Vista 64bit I can't use ATITools. Any suggestions?

Do you know what the max temp i want to stay under on my video card? I am not sure which driver I have. Diamond says that since I am running 64bit that I'm going to have a hard time with OC'ing. Do you know if that is true?

OK, I ran Everest last night and all went well. I set all RAM settings on auto except I did a manuel setting of 2.2 volts. Also, I increased my CPU to 1.35 volts. I am trying to get my rig as optimized as possible for Crysis. Can you please take a look and let me know if I can do better. I just spent almost an hour trying to show a screen print but I just can't seen to figure it out so i will just tell you the info...

CPU-Z says Core Voltage 1.320 V, Core Speed 3203.9 MHz, Multi X 9.0, Bus 356.0 MHz, FSB 1424.0MHZ,

SpeedFan says, Sys 37c, CPU 48c, AUX 122c, Core 0 45c, Core 1 40c, Core 2 35c, and Core 3 39c. CPU fan is 2265 RPM
