Default Overclocking ATI 9600XT 256 & graphics card for under £150

What kinds of clock speeds have people got overclocking this card and has anyone got any recommendations for fans for it?

Also, what is the best graphics card for under £150 / $285 ?

Thanks

if u have a look at the card the fan is way bigger than all of the other radeon cards and if u really need to overclock this if u want like 90 fps in half life 2 then ur an idiot. Just use the built in overdrive (overclock) feature. no xtra fans needed. U can get a speed of around 537 i think if i remember proeprly

Well crazy it depends on what type of speed you mean. Either chipset/Core Speed or Memmery/Effective Speed.

For 537mhz im positive your talking about chipset.core speed.

Do you have the manufacturers fan? Or have you replaced with a better one?
