You just answered your own question.

And about overclocking, the same thing goes for you and the 9,000,000 others who've asked: go in 5 MHz increments at a time until you either get lockups or artifacts. The auto-detect overclocking feature in the drivers can be a good baseline, though many times it will estimate too high, so watch out.

First of all, punctuation is your friend. Mr. Period lets people know when you're ending a sentence. It makes it much easier for people to make sense of what you're trying to say.

Second, 700/1200 is absurdly high. I know the auto-detect can go nuts at times, but I've never seen it that far off the mark. Again, go up in 5-10 MHz increments at a time, testing each setting with a 3D application.
