well after killing my geforce gts, i was stuck with the opition of replacing it with a cheaper card. i was gonna get a 64 meg geforece mx, but got a good deal on a voodoo 5500 ($119). so after having it pass stability tests and what not, i went to town modding it with my custom alpha ram sinks and twin socket7 cpu coolers. i cranked my epox's agp voltage to 3.6 and went to town. the best i got so far thats 100% stable is 192 mhz. i don't know if thats a good overclock for this card so let me know. also is 2.6 agp voltage pushin it?


and one more thing, is 4895 a low score for this card in 3dmark2000? i use to get 6000+ with my gts.

I wouldn't be too concerned about your 3DMark score. 3DMark is totally catered towards Nvidia cards, and takes major advantage of a T&L unit. This is not true in most games so, in fact, 3DMark is a very poor performance test.
