i recently bought a new computer then downloaded ati catalyst and was curious as to how far i could overclock my 4850 without doing damage? i so far have only increased the clock speed by 25 Mhz is this to much to little basically how far without causing damage my gpu currently runs at about 50 degrees celcius if that helps.

On my old 8600gt,i overclocked by 10% before it started locking up in game.
All cards will react differently to the degree of overclocking that they will take.
Just increase the MHz by a bit at a time and then game test it. And keep an eye on your temps.
When the games start to freeze,just back off a bit untill it's stable.

My 10% overclock resulted in an average increase of 4-5 fps per game.
I decided that this was not worth the bother and reset my card back to the default settings.
