I'm trying to overclock but can't get very far at all. It's stock speed is GPU-500mhz and Memory-600mhz. I was able to overclock the memory about 15mhz and run 3dmark03 without crashing, but if I try to overclock the GPU even 1mhz it will crash within 5 seconds. It has the RV360 and Hynix 2.8ns. I never get any artifacts before it crashes. And the computer totally crashes, it doesn't just exit out of the program. It doesn't even have to be a game or benchmark, it could do it just opening up explorer. Do I need to change my drivers or update the BIOS on it or anything? I can't figure this out, it doens't make sense.

You're lucky, my AIW 9600 Pro would need a vmod to sustain 500MHz VPU.

Yeah, but it should be able to overclock more right? My card I mean.

That happened to me with my 9800Pro. It crashed everytime and without any artifacts. I discovered it was my psu. When I changed it, I could OC perfectly. I'm a total noob but it worked for me!

Thats what I'm thinking too :\. I will get a new powersupply with my next paycheck hopefully. I guess a TruePower 430watt will do well for my system?

I think the most important thing in a psu is quality, not power. Of course power is still very important but my new 350W psu is much more stable and delivers more than my old 400W.
