    is it a good idea? i have an ati radeon x1300 pro 512 mb.. would i see a huge difference if i overclock this? or is it not even worth doing?

    At most you'd see a 10fps difference. If its actively cooled(FAN), then you might be able to get a good overclock. I dont know how X1000 series cards overclock, but you might be able to do better.

    ATI Catalyst Drivers have built in over clocking for the X1000 series cards. Run Catalyst (Advanced) and you will see the option. Unlock the option and give it a go.

    You guys all need to download ATiTool! I've used it ever since I've started overclocking video cards and it works like a charm. It will even monitor your GPU temps and voltages (pokerblogger, increase your voltages a notch, and see if your card is still unstable). Also, I would get the latest Catalyst drivers (6.6) because that could have caused some instability issues. 6.5's sucked!
