    try ati tool to overclock it. There are a few different programs out on the net unless you want to bios flash it to a 9800 XT.

    Hope this helps.

    hey you should also consider better cooling option(heatsink,fan) than your stock cooling.oc'ing increases the heat dissappation,the stock cooler might not be able to take it.but also be warned that you'll void your warranty.

    This will give you the performance difference or you can check out 3dmark for performance gains. You will not see a performance increase if the game is running more than 30fps check fraps it will tell you the exact frames you are getting while playing your game. Anything over 30frames you will not notice.
    I heard artic cooling silencer is good for the 9800 pro thats what i have for my 6800 Gt but there is this zalman silent cooler with fan that is on that i heard is good as well.
