i have a dual slot 8800 GT video card and i tried to over clock it for the first time from the stock 600mhz to 700mhz reaching a temp of 67-70 degrees C, i Used EVGA Precision Software and everything seemed to work stable although i only tested it for a few minutes.

I tested it with Crysis and when i overclocked it i was able to play on all very high settings(Enthusiast) and 1280x780 res. without problems.


What are the Temperatures a Video Card Should run on, to not cause problems?

Also whats the Max this Video Card can be overclock without problems.

700mhz is around the typical limit for 8800gt's lower binned g92 core with 112 sp, although you can certainly try higher. Some people have gotten 750mhz before. For 8800gts/9800gtx's g92 with full 128 sp, the limit is 750-800mhz.

For temperature, it's fine as long as it's below 85C. Use this for stress test, stability mode, default resolution, no aa.
