Its best to oc both RAM and Core to the max. You should see a BIG leap. I am not sure about which drivers are the best, but I would head over to www.guru3d.com and download the drivers for Powered by cards. Remember, Only the built by ATI can use the Built by ATi drivers, but there is a way to get them to work on Powered by Cards. do a google search, i lost the linky to a reformaty
