Dude, the only way I know is after you buy it. :wink:
Usually, overclocking a card is achieved by increasing the bus speed, which increases the PCI and AGP speed. That means you'll be overclocking the cpu as well. Most mobos and/or cpu's don't like overclocking, so it depends a lot on your mobo and cpu.

You go to asite and download either coolbits, NVtweak or Riva Tuner, and that allows you to use non WHQL drivers and sets up a overclocking utility,that allows for memory and core adjustments depending on how serious you are at OC the easiest 1 is coolbits,then NV,then Riva tuner you can get more out of card with lasr 2 but settings take some reading to really tweak to prefectionhttp://www.guru3d.com has all your answers
