hey everyone im planning on overclocking my
HIGHTECH EXCALIBUR RADEON 9550se 256mb (rv350)

my specs are:
AMD Athlon XP, 2166 mhz (13 x 167) 2700+
1024mb ddr sdram

this card was fine for a while but with these new games coming out theres no chance this card will be enough.

im just wondering what your guys opinions on how far i can SAFELY push this card. recently i blew an old psu but im willing to attempt this again. i dont think i will need additional cooling (my case is currently at 34 C and my CPU is at 11 C). i dont really want to blow another 50 bucks on a new psu. im looking for max core and max mem. i am greatful for your opinions.

Emm your temperature sensors are broken those temps arent possible. Overclocking the gfx card will make little diference to performance, the reason why newer games dont run as well on older cards isnt there lack of power its there lack of new features.
