Default Overclocking the ol' 7800GS

I have a 7800GS in my Dell and I have it overclocked to 500/1200 but it starts to artifect and the temperatures are reading 48C. Why is it artifecting when its only 48C I should be able to hit 550/1250 or maybe 600/1300 until it gets in the mid 50's or early 60s. I have been playing World of Warcraft and it's only getting around 20 FPS. Can someone get as much juice out of this 7800GS OC Edition.
