what is the known problems on overclocking the AGP bus?
have overclocked my system but because the graphics i cant go so far, only 4MHz FSB more until the image gets some little light flashes on the textures. Does the system memory has anything to do with this?
thanks.

Most graphics video cards can be overclock a pretty good bit. What is yours? (General rule, give all info on your comp when posting a hardware question. Just makes your answere's better and come faster.)

Overclocking a video card is different than overclocking the AGP bus on a motherboard. It's best to run the AGP port as close to spec as possible. Overclocking AGP bus results in system instability, with little/no performance difference.

ok. have not related the VC cuz thought it would not matter but if someone has tried before usign the same card could naturally help me too. it is an asus v7100 pure 32MB running with 210/200MHz and detonator3 latest official drivers. AGP bus is 68MHz and beyond that the little light flashes begin to appear on the texture surfaces.
I couldnt find the I/O voltages on BIOS, is it possible this has anything to do with the system memory?
