I think im ready to start overclocking so I figured Id start with my video card. Its a GTX 285

I had some cooling issues but got a better CPU heatsink and I believe everything is running smoothly now but Id like some of your professional opinions on that before I go ahead and get some help overclocking.

So far the software I have is

cpuz
HWMonitor
IntelBurn test
memtest
prime95
Realtemp
Speedfan
3SMark06
3DMark Vantage
EVEREST
Core Damage

and Ill find any other program you suggest

Now which of these should I run to test stability for an OC and Im a noob so what am I actually looking for? Just for it to say pass? Or just watch temps and report them back to you guys to see if they are ok? A walkthrough would be awesome if you guys have the time.

Thanks
