    I was on http://www.rage3d.com and I saw an artice about the Sapphire Toxic X800 Pro. What I found interesting is that the card comes with something called APE (Automatic Performance Enhancer).

    Does anyone know anything about this?

    Does it Slowly overclock and check for errors?

    Where can I download this program?

    Here is a quote from the article about APE..

    "So what exactly is APE? APE is a small program that overclocks the Toxic X800 Pro's memory to a level that Sapphire guarantees to work. There is no interface or control panel for it and no configuration or interaction of any kind is neither provided nor necessary, it simply does what it's supposed to do and nothing more. Installing APE is as simple as any other Windows app and requires only a system reboot and nothing more. Once installed, APE automatically overclocks the Toxic X800 Pro's memory from 450MHz to 520MHz, a respectable 70MHz increase. To disable APE and return the card to its normal memory clocks you simply uninstall it and reboot"

    The concept is there but the lack of control is astounding. Just use ATiTool =)! Remember: limitations aren't caused by software, but rather, hardware.
