hehe, i got an idea, 3dmark05 will actully run a P2 450 with a 5200 64bit card with 64mb of memory with only 64mb of ram in the system. I might have a shot :D

but i see no reason to enter in all honesty there are alot of people out there who could actully use this.

Hee.. this should be good... One of my old boards the AGP bus doesn't work at all, and I've got a damaged 9600 that goes about half the normal speed. I'll just take out the 2x256 sticks of pc2100 and put in the 128 that doesn't work with em, should be nice and slow...

Is underclocking allowed?

An underclocked 9550 on an underclocked 2GHz Celeron with 64MB of underclocked RAM sounds good :)

since underclocking is not forbidden in the rules i assume it is allowed.

Yeah this competition is stupid, what if somebody will running video compressing in the background, and after he/she will get 3 score. Is that the winner?

Wonder if i can underclock my 350mhz pentium i have in the shed it only has 64mb of ram and 16mb onboard graphics ram.Its the slowest piece of crap ever.
Just wish i still had a 486 33mhz lmao.

No point underclocking my quad core its still gonna do quite well.
