You don't need to touch your 2D (core) clock rate, only 3D. As one usually does when OC'ing, only go in small increments; i.e 5MHz or so at a time. Can't tell you what freq's you'll succesfully hit without any bugs though as I have no experience with a 6600 GT, maybe 580/1100 or higher, depending on voltages, cooling, BIOS version etc...

Don't forget to watch your temps too...

What jAkUp said, absolutely. Very important. Adding to that, pay close attention while running any benchies/stress tests (like DX9 RTHDRIBL) for any graphical glitches usually caused by an overheating GPU and/or VRAM, known as artifacts (loose black polys appearing randomly all over the screen is one common symptom of overheating).
