Question (help)Ready to OC my graphics card!!!

Ok guys...I think I'm ready.

Graphics Card (PCI): Nvidia Riva TNT2 Model64 with 16MB-SDR-RAM
Both memory and GPU running @ 110MHz
GPU only has a small heatsink and the memory does not have cooling.

I have RivaTuner and I already rebootet my comp to let RivaTuner detect everything.

A few question before I start:

-Is there any difference between the 'test' an 'Apply' button?
-The blue zones mean its relatively safe, right?
-Should I select "Restore clock frquencies after suspended mode"?
-What should I OC first? Memory or RAM? Or do I have to slide them both like a few MHz up and click 'Apply' or 'Test'?

I'm a real newbie to OC'ing.....

Thanks in advance!!!!

That's awesome that you're getting into overclocking.. yet sadly, the card you're doing it one will not perform any better from the users POV... You may score another couple hundred points on 3DK01 but you're not going to gain anything from this... Mind you.. your whole system could use an upgrade.. but if you're just doing this for fun and to see if you can do it, then cheers =)
Just don't blow anything up hehe
