Keep on going up very slightly until you start to see artifacts (errors on the screen.) and then back it off a little. Be aware of the true load temp, you don't want to go too close to the absolute limit.

I wouldn't be too bothered about overclocking the GPU, but more interested in that CPU, 3ghz isn't alot for a Intel.

Maybe 620 Mhz core and 1.85 Ghz memory speed for that Gfx card.

Wow that cpu is REALLY bottlenecking your overall preformance.

Sweet my guessing skills were correct.

It really depends on your card, some OC better than others. Tell us how high it goes after you OC it!

or you could of just done it the easy way and hit "detect otpimal frequences", and if that was too low, raise it until it started artifacting?
