Guys,

Right now I have a Geforce2mx200 in my System, Well i got my Geforce4MX 440se AGP back and was wondering which AGP Ratios would be more stable at 138 and 143mhz FSB?

I have yet to entirely figur out the what this means, 1:1 is like the speed of PCI x2 for AGP right?

But I have no utilitys ofr reoprting PCI Speed, All Sisoft sandra says is PCI vr2.10 or something....

I havent been home to test this yet, I take it 2:3 ratio would be better correct? Because my board does have that divider at 133mhz fsb to put the PCI bus back in to spec at 33.3mhz....

agp and BX = agp divider is related to the FSB. Not the PCI.
So 1:1 menas agp 138 in your example. (= extremely high)
and 2/3 means 92mhz agp.

(agp default = 66mhz)

Ok thansk for clearing that up, I put teh Geforce4 MX 440 in and well its not stable at 143fsb, cacheman produces errors, but at 138fsb its stable so far, AGP bus speed is 92mhz.

God this system runs so much better with AGP enabled....
