Default Which is the best ultility to use for overclocking

The ASUS seems buggy and I really don't like how MSI does thiers with just + numbers .Is the EVGAPrecisionX any better for overclocking and telling what you are overclocking to.

They all do just about the same thing. Just has a different name and looks a little different. I wouldn't say any of the programs are better than the other, but I prefer EVGA Precision X.

The asus software made my computer crash horribly (oc stock or underclocked) but they all do it pretty much the same way with different lay-out.

I'm using the EVGA precision x atm but am tempted to try the msi one as the layout is horrible for trying to see what your clocks are set to with precisionx.
EVGA's stability and ASUS's interface would be spot-on

You can't OC the video card in the BIOS though. :\
