Any good programs to stress test my Radeon 9800 Pro video ..

Archived from groups: alt.comp.periphs.videocards.ati (More info?)

I don't have any games that will loop demos all day to see if my video
card is overheating (see http://www.rage3d.com/board/showthread.php?t=33803105 )
.... Are there any programs beside 3D screen savers to run for nonstop and
without me being at the keyboard during those tests in Windows XP Pro. SP2?

In the past, Half-Life 2 crashed with "hl2.exe Application Error --
"0x241f94b7" referenced memory at "0x0107f5c0". The memory could not be
"read"." errors and random blue screen errors (see
http://tinyurl.com/42mhw ) and scren savers getting choppy after a few
hours (see http://www.rage3d.com/board/showthread.php?t=33803105 ).

Thank you in advance. :)

    There is or was an automatic overclocking utility for ATI cards that tests
    for artifacts as it runs (it shows a spinning fuzzy cube). I forget the
    name tho, someone here will have it.

    Thanks guys. Do I assume I can run this all night/hours without
    overclocking my video card?
