I am trying to up my 3dmark2001 score. Right now it is around 3300. First of all, is this a little low? Secondly, I tried overclocking to 200/420 (normal 200/400), and when I touched the card, it was HOT! I don't know how I can measure the temperature, but what should I do to cool it down? Or will it run that hot?

Upgrading the heatsink and adding memory heatsinks can help to get rid of the heat. 2cooltek.com has a good selection. I think they might even have a kit for your card

Your setup should run you around the marks in the file attached. It's a score comparison based on my processor and 3d2k1 score.

Hehe, I figured out one of my problems...I accidentally installed the VIA 4-in-1 drivers with the AGP set at normal mode, so I was running AGP at 1x. Oops... I fixed that and overclocked by 5 MHz core and 5 MHz RAM and got a score of 3520...somewhat better.

Ok, if I get a cardcooler, do I also need to get a chipset cooler (blue orb and ramsinks)?
