Once I tried to run the game it stopped working.

I think it doesnt like the memory being increased because I pushed core to 700 and mem to 925 and it bugged out as well.

Also overclocking does not void the XFX warrenty correct?

Voltmodding is pretty much a given warranty void. Changing settings via a softmod which is a program wont void the warranty. Use ATI tool to check for overclocking stability. The artifact scanner will make sure the card is stable.

ITs not stable at 750/975 becaue it stopped in 3dmark06 and while playing COD4 I think the memory is slow.

Nah im pretty sure its the 750mhz core clock that caused your instability. I tried to run 3dmark06 at 730 and crashed every time. I was only able to finish 3dmark06 at 720mhz. I'm pretty sure the cards are about 90% maxed out from the factory.
