    I got that exact board, using Omega's drivers and Rage 3D to overclock it. I think it's running at 576/350 (stock 500/300?) something like that at the moment, but I can check when I get home. I didn't bother with SmartDoctor, PoS IMHO. Used 3DMark2003 for testing and also playing games for a few hours will let you know.

    I can't remember links of the top of my head for this stuff, but a quick search should find them. If not, someone else can tell you or I can when I get home.

    I have the Sapphire 9600XT 128, it’s a very good card. There’s a temperature sensor on the card, which gives accurate readings. And there’s an Overdrive section, which overclocks the card to about 520 depending on the present temperature of your card. If its too hot it wont overclock much.

    But like Big Al said, you can use Rage 3D.

    Well, at my speeds it's still running in the 30's, both GPU and RAM. So I think it's either a very cool card, or Asus have got some damn good cooling on it (not loud!).
