Question GPU vs Memory: overclocking question

I've gotten back into the habit of over-clocking my PNY 5900.

it's normal specs are 400/850, and it runs fine at 450/900.

That's kinda like the GT version of the 5900s, as the 5900 Ultra (not 5950) runs at 450/850.

Which would affect my card's performance more, the GPU or the memory?

If I crank the GPU up anymore (to the 5950 ultra stats) my card will get hotter than 60-65+C and I get artifacts.

I'm not sure what the memory would do, or if that would burn up at higher speeds.

Right now its idling at 47C (GPU) 34C (ambient, memory?)

GPU gives you more performance, so if the GPU is already limited by heat/artifacting then it's time to raise up the memory as high as you can
