I just put together an 800 Duron with PC2100 ram on an Iwill Ka266 Plus mobo. I will be upgrading the cpu to an XP1600 here shortly. I ran 3dmark2k1 on it with a ti200 vid card and got a meager 3500 points with it. Will installing newer drivers for the chipset help that out do you think? Or is that about what I should expect with this setup? I have the cpu OC'ed only to 840 at the moment until I can get a better hsf on it. I did get it to post at 133fsb, and think with a better hsf on it it should boot into windows.

This 800 that I am running is unlocked. The only problem is that the mobo has a new bios on it that wont allow multiplier changes.
