Default How to OC a video card.

I have a 9600se. I have heard you can overclock them, but I don't know how. Can anyone tell me how and if it is worth it? You can see my setup below, nothing is OC'd...yet. I am getting a better cooler for the CPU before I do, then I will.

Check out: Basics on How to overclock

It is worth overclocking, even better if you can combine overclocking, i.e. CPU, memory and VGA all at the same time.

I am waiting for my CPU cooler to come before I overclock my "System 2".
