That is a pretty good overclock. You might just wanna stop there, unless you feel like there is more room.

If you get any artifacts/"weird stuff" just lower the clocks and keep it there.

EDIT: Also, in the future try to make the spelling at least, a bit more careful!

I would take the Core down to 700 if i was you as 750+ is abit to high for long entensive gaming.

shader at 1512 seems fine

memory @ 1152 should be around 1250 Max as ddr3 can be oc'ed realy nice if you have fan runing at 80 dont go over that though 1250 as its max it will go, If you can push volts up on memmory on card you could overclock it more to over 1300+.
