Default Safe to overclock?

My ATI Radeon X800 Pro runs at around 50*C idle and as high as 65*C under heavy load. For an ATI gfx card, this is about normal. I was wondering if it would be safe to overclock my card, and if so, how much? What is the max temp I should let my card get to? Thanks for replies.

if u oc a video card it wont affect the temperature a lot u dont usually have to worry about heat, but if u oc too much it will be unstable and freeze, jerk, crash, ect.
