get him to download this
http://www.techpowerup.com/atitool/

it has an automatic overclocking tool (both GPU and memory) that will test the capabilities of the card and will automatically look for artifacts when artifacts are found it will stop the clock and then start to downclock until it no longer finds artifacts this process can sometimes take a while. if you dont want to do it automatically it has a manual setting via a few simple easy to use sliders. if you choose to do it manually then download 3dMark 03 and run the 3d tests run through all of them and look for artifacts. this method is not preferred as it allows for a large margin of error.

i would suggest downloading ati tool and running the automatic overclocking tool then once that has compleated run 3dMark03 aswell just to see and finaly cheack for any artifacts.

also run 2 tests with 3dMark 03 and save or just remeber the score. this will enable you to see the difference betwenn the two settings.

BUT remeber that just like overclocking a CPU the card will get hot! ensure that the card is adacually cooled and there is pleanty of air flowing through the case or if its water cooled then make sure the card has a good water block and memory heatsinks.
