Plugged in my X800GTO underclocked it, ran it with the Q6600 @ 3.6GHz, tweaked a bit and scored blazing 1154.

Another test run further tweaked yielded three (3) frames @ wings of fury (total score n/a)... ;)

I have a Duron 1.0 and a K7S5A Board, no cooler and no video card (was MX440) well it does have the stock heatsink sorta lol alot of gunk built up in the mounting latch and I ripped it off so it's like half on half off probably could fix it.

maybe this would be useful to someone?

I've still got a Barton 2600+, a NForce 2 Ultra400 board and my poor old FX 5600. :D Time to underclock :cool:

Oh wait!!!

Dad's P4 1.7 + Intel Desktop Board D845WN (+ 384MB PC133) I could make it run on 128MB / (256MB if its part of 3dMark03's MSR) and then my FX 5600 (AGP speed down to 2X, brutally underclocked using Rivatuner, maybe a modded BIOS. I only have to find a way to make that CPU crawl....oh wait F@H FTW :rockout:

Dang, I can't possibly pipe-cripple or underclock my X800GTO any further.
I really need to get back the X1300 which I borrowed to my brother to push game test FPS' even lower.

An underclocked 6100 with it's one single vertex processor and two pixel shaders could be a killer for this competition...

Dont personally have an onboard , nor do I need a AGP card, just thought I'd put my 2 pennies in for you all to play with!

Why bother doing like a virus scan during the tests? Just break out a few Prime95 torture tests?
