You may have just hit the crackpot with a card that can't overclock much higher than that. Not sure what kind of cooling you have in your case but that could be a factor too? Also make sure your power limit is pushed as far as it can go (or as far as you're comfortable with putting it). Also, your mobo could be holding you back a little but I'd be quicker to point my finger at the GPU (ie. better mobo generally allow for better overclocks). If you're not hitting at least 1100 Mhz (which it sounds like you're not?) then I think you probably just have a card that probably just can't go beyond that...
