Be carefull of that temp and be sure to take it back down the second you notice anything wrong, in some games you may not get the artifacts but you might notice a lack of visual quality.

Personally I dont recommend overclocking with those extra pipes/shader unlocked though as a GS I guess it should take more abuse than a vanilla card.

Intel core I7 920
6GB OCZ platinum 1600
XFX HD4890
Noctua nh-u12p
Corsair HX520
Antec 300
Samsung 1TB F1 Spinpoint
Samsung SM2443BW 24"

ya and just oc clock half or what u do to the memory. but the temp is always the biggest thing. play ur most resource demanding game for 30 mins and then go back and check the temp and u'll see how it is maxed
