i was running 140*7.5 = 1050 on my 8kta3 + Tbird 850 combo. After a few days my 3 yr old 3dfx Banshee wouldn't boot well... n ended up w/ a cooked busted chip on d lower left of d Video card board. Did d overclock of FSB to 140 killed my video card? opinions pls.....

A 70 MHz AGP bus ain't gonna cook anything. It must have died of old age.

Sure, you can cook anything when pushed beyond specs, but that's mostly the exception rather than the rule, the boot problem you're having with the non-banshee card sounds like a separate issue. I usually keep an old pci 2MB cirrus logic laying around that I know works to test and boot with... be sure to try something you know works first. I have had nothing but problems with new vid cards getting them to boot (but that was primarily an AGP issue). It usually requires persistence and gallons of coffee.
