Ok firstly clocking,

http://service.futuremark.com/compare?2k3=4074653

That was '03 at 400 core and 800 memory, both core and memory temps were at about 60C

Ran '05 and it dropped back to desktop after 2 game tests muttering something about Direct 3D... there were no artifacts on the screen before this, any idea why this happened?

Ran RTHDRIBL in window and monitored temps, with core at 435 and memory at 800 again temps weren't far over 60C and NO artifacts.

Thats all I have got so far though, any advice gents?

Secondly the temp monitoring, I have to use Asus's own utility as the nVidia mointoring won't show up even with coolbits, how come?

Third and final question, how do I enable overscan on the TV output? Can't find it anywhere in the drivers!

Your 03 score is okay for that 6800GT - remember that this Asus is not the same as the reference 6800GT's - quote from an online vendor website:
"The core on this card is a normal 6800GT clocked at 350Mhz, but the RAM is slower than a regualar 256mb GT, the ram on this card runs at 750mhz rather than the 1Ghz on regular GTs. "

The clue to your 05 question maybe in the fact that 03 did not recognize your clock and memory speeds correctly ??

I know its got the slower memory, thats why it was only 146 inc. Its only for 6 months till I go PCI-E.

'03 also does not recognise the clock speeds, therefor I do not believe thats the problem with '05.
