    Guys, I need to know each and every method there is on earth that will boost my AGP's performance, be it overclocking BIOS setup or using verbal assault.

    Please include the risks involved and the benefits too. I have got a simple heat sink on the chip and that's it.... so keep that in mind please..

    Thanks in advance!

    Sorry m8,

    The search has been tried. I registered for the sole purpose of posting my "first-time" query.

    Thanks, for something, in advance.

    I once kicked a microwave and got that working better.. =)

    First of all, you got a big enough PSU to where you don't get that error message at startup which cuts down on the fx by 50%?

    Does your heatsink have a fan on it? the fan makes all the difference in the world.

    I used a fx5200 !!ULTRA!! before by eVGA but the card really is a sad experience, I would go so far as to recommend selling the card and getting a Radeon 9100 (DX8) or better. The R9100 performed better than the 5200U. Or get a 9550 and join us in our project forum (only ~$100 on best buy, much cheaper on newegg.com).

    Download the omega drivers for nvidia and overclock using the software included. (http://www.omegadrivers.net) careful, you don't want to fry eggs on your vid card.

    FX 5200 or 5600 Non-Ultra version don't have support for hardware monitoring or temp.
