    I have an ati radeon 9200 card, and yes i know its ancient.

    I want to overclock it using atitool.

    How would i know that I have reached a max value before frying my card??

    Scan for artifacts is what you do to know the max value before frying your card. :D

    What you'll want to do is increase clocks, open artifact scanner for at least a minute, then increase again, take small steps if this is your first time OC-ing..5-10mhz. Don't expect too much out of that card, if I were youresearching overclocking that card on google would be the first place I'd go..see what others have attained, get an idea...also remember that card is older and probably has had a long life now..it may not go as far as a few out there...so don't set your goal too high either, something realistic. Read some guides, feel confident in what you're doing and the tools you're using before you overclock.
