Default OCing my 8800GTS

What's up guys?

So I've successfully OCed my Q6600 to 3.2 GHz on an eVGA 680i with the help of you guys.

Now I want to OC my GPU. I've been reading a lot of stuff on how to use Rivatuner etc. I'm wondering what some of you guys are pushing with your 8800GTSs. Right now I'm set at 620 core/1000 memory clocks. I'm just using the settings that are in the guide, because in the guide he also uses an eVGA 8800 GTS.

So yea i'm wondering what you guys have hit safely and perhaps what's gonna hinder my clocks speeds from going higher. Thanks in advance.

*edit* Also, how do I know my OC is successfully working with Rivatuner? Like, with my CPU, I could just run CPUZ and see what my CPU was clocked at. How can i do the same with GPU OCs?

I tend to use ATI-tool with rivatuner, I OC with rivatuner and run ATI-tool at the same time watching for artifacts. I also use nvidia monitor to watch temps.
