Is there any consequences to run a G200 16meg @ 89-100 mhz. I think that this is whats holding my back to o/c mu P!!! 733 to 825. I can do 89 at 2x agp and if I put it at 93 or 100 at 2x it post's but no screen unless I reboot it, and I think its causing stability prolbems. If i put it at 1x it stops but i still have stability problems

If I put it at 1/1 agp at 133mhz and at 1x would that be like running it close to the same as 2/3 and at 66mhz at 2x?

I tried the same thing recently and got similar results. You need to run the agp at spec as much as possible. I saw twice the artifacting even when the card booted and ran benchmarks while running the agp bus at 92-100. It's a wonder the card runs at all that high, don't get pushy with it, you might damage it.
