Car overheats when driven with the aircondition switched on

I have Honda Accord 1997 Model. When the car is driven with the AC switched on for about half an hour, the temperature needle starts moving towards the the red mark. Can some one help me in this regard

Three things to look at (maybe 4).........Coolant level????......Is the radiator full??? ........Are the coolant fans working??? Mark said, but this will mostly affect when the car is NOT in motion as in stuck in traffic or at a light............If the car passes those tests I'd replace the radiator as it would probably be restricted...........
Some would say Thermostat (Dat's my #4)but I REALLY don't see it as that as a stuck stat will take you to red line in about 5 minutes......
