Default OC'in My ATI 9550

I need help on how to overclock my ATI Radeon 9550 8x AGP 128MB card. I just got it a couple weeks ago, and I have pretty much broken it in. Can anyone tell me how to even get started on OC'ing it? It runs HL2 and CS:S great buts gets a little choppy on very intense parts. Btw it was a great buy, on sale for 69.99, so I couldn't pass it up.

Ah okay thanks. But how do I actually increase my mhz? I have burned in my card, so it should be able to handle 5-10 mhz jumps. It's like 2 weeks old.

For my ATi overclocking needs, I use ATiTool. It is super easy to use and it will OC the card to the point that it is still stable automatically. I cant remember where I got it, so just google it.
