To OC a GFX card you usually use a utility like Powerstrip to steadily increase the clock speeds of the GPU and the video memory. After each increment that you increase the speeds you should play a GFX intensive game or benchmarking program to push the card and make sure it is stable..... If you see any artifacts or if the game fails you have gone too far and need to back down the speeds abit till it is stable I would think that you could get a 9700 Pro up to as fast as a 9800 Pro with OCing

Just becareful you don't go to far and fry the the sucker
