    Gigabyte ATI Radeon 4550 HD.

    What's the furthest that you should overclock it to?

    I think that depends on quite some things, like your Cooling System etc.
    This may help you

    What kind of cooling have you got? And how much extra voltage are you willing to give it? If you wanna really see an increase in performance you're most definitely gonna see a decrease in life span :|

    Just fan cooling.
    I'm gonna clock it more when I have a better cooling system installed.
    So my card doesn't burn.
    I added a little 20Mhz to it.
    That should be fine.
    I checked the Speccy and the temperature rosed by 1-2 degrees celcius.

    Fan Cooling isn't that great in most cases, but a new one isn't that expensive
    (Assuming you won't cool your PC with Chemicals and such )

    Just keep the temperature below 60 degrees and your good

    And that's only my graphics card.

    You can pretty much push it to 100°C under load but you won't get there (with stability) without giving it some more juice

    4550 is so weak that it's a waste of money getting better cooling for it. You would probs get better performance if you just wasted the money on a better card
