Overclocking Video Card

Alright I just ordered some of the stuff for my new system:
Mobo: Asus-A8N32-SLI Deluxe
Processor: AMD Athalon64 X2 3800
Video Card: XFX Geforce 6800GS 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16

Who is familiar with overclocking their systems, I don't wanna push my card too hard since its obviously not one of the greatest but for the money its what I decided to go with. The core clock on the video card is 485MHz, whats the most I should look at pushing it to? I've got plenty of cooling, though I'd like to setup a water cooling system in the next few months.

GPU is not what you want to overclock, increase the memory speed for maxium results.

There are ton of great modded drivers out there that have coolbits included. One of the best out there right now is Xtreme G 83.90.
