I use ATI Tool on my 8800 GTS 320MB card. It's the most stable program I've used, and it also has a feature to stress the graphics card and find out if it's stable.

I use ntune for the CPU sometimes, but only to find out how far it will go. Then I'll use the BIOS.

But for overclocking the video card, I find Nvidia's software to be not that great.

well i use ntune, then i use ati tool to check stability.
With ati...you can go further on the mem clock.

I like how you can test it with ntune, and i like how you can stress your card with ati tool/.
A combination of both works best.

I use ATI Tool on my 8800GTS 320mb, and that works perfectly, it also has a stress tester, and you can just plonk in the numbers by hand, hit enter, and it will apply it, if it don't like it, it will artifact or crash!
