Excellent article. came very close to doing this myself, but I just don't NEED to... a GF4 Ti4200 would see the most benefit from doing this as it NEEDS as much help as it can get.

The directions appear to match what I've read on [h], madonion, and other sites.

It has me seriously thinking about it. I am lucky to get 7500 on 3dmark , I would like some more power.
I have never done anything that drastic on a pc before and was wondering if anyone else around here had some insight.

Your stock athlon has no chance against overclocked systems, it's no wonder you're not pleased with your score.

In 3d mark applications, bandwidth is life is frames, if you want a higher score you'll need more frames and to achieve that you'll need more bandwidth.

get that front side bus pumping!

I am actually on a Compaq ........ please don't beat me!

I am planning on building on new one for Christmas , probably a 1600 , still deciding on a mobo, I have narrowed it down to an Abit KX7-333 and an Epox 8K3A .

Any suggestions ?
