I have installed my new asus 9600xt and their programs smart doctor as well as the newest catalyst drivers i could get from the Ati website, and well i try to use smart doctor to overclock my card and yet even if i only raise the number by 1 of either core clock or memory, or even if i lower them it says my card is not responding or just shuts my computer down. So is there a step i am missing or a better way to do this if anyone knows please let me know, and sorry for the grammer, tryin to do 4 things at once.

Have you just tried using the overdrive facility thats available in the control panel? I know it's not much but it's a start.

Also check with riva tuner or something similier to determine just what your current clock speeds are.

Thanks a ton to both of you, both of your answers helped a ton. I have used Rage 3d since the Asus Smart Doctor program does not work and oced my card to
Core:531
Memory:660

What is everyone elses average overclock levels, i don't want to raise it anymore until i know since i know asus doctor will rest my values if they don't work will rage 3d aswell?
