try setting your 3d setting all the way to the left and set aa and af to 2x and application preference.
also 3DMark 2001 SE relies on the fsb.you should be able to set
it to 200 fsb with the 2500barton.

thanks, ur so right though! holly shiat i raised it to 175 from 166 and it brought me to 15700, which i still want more but my goodness, (i have been off this stuff for a year now so im a newb again) neway yeah i had another card before this Leadtech Ti4200 AGP 8x, and a 2000+ which i got a 9000 stock on that

by the way, how many increments should i use while upping the fsb, so i dont burn nething? and whats too hot for a barton?

I'd do 5 mhz increments.

You won't kill the thing, just if you go too high it won't boot and you just start up while holding the insert button down.

if its a newer chip you should be able to run your vcore at
stock or a little above stock vcore with a fsb of 200.
i scored around 17500 at 3dmark 01se and 6500 in 3dmark 03.

I have the 3dmark 03 but mine was higher than that I have to look up my scores, 6700 something like that.
