    Download these drivers for your vidcard. They are optimised and have a built-in overclocking utility. They update frequently.

    Also your vidcard should snack heartily on an ATI 9200se. You can download benchmark utils like 3dMark2003 to see performance difference.

    Go to www.tweakguides.com and read the guides for Windows XP and for America's Army.

    i suggest ,if you have the money, to upgrade your video card because the 9200 SE is a peice of ****. i had one in my old computer and it kept causing instability in the system. Also you wont get much overclocking use out of PNY ram because from what ive heard its rubbish. For overclocking the video card use ATI tool. Its easy to use and doesnt change any registry information

    sorry mate. just sort of skimmed through. missed the part where it said 5900. Use www.Guru3d.com to find various overclocking tools for your video card then because it is NVidia

    I figured you'd like to know.
    Anyway, I dunno if Intel OC's too well on the VIA chipset, you'd be a lot better off upgrading to a mobo with the Intel 865 or Intel 875 chipset. OC'ing is dirt easy and you can get a huge OC with any P4C with good cooling.
