    Default Overclocking Amd And geforce 4 whats better setup ?

    :) Hi I'm trying to set up a computer for overclocking i've had experience b4 but would like some opinions or possible advice . the video cards i have are very disproportionate in their performance but the cpu's are very similar . the duron based system overclocked to 1900ghz @158mz fsb the athlon pooppedout way before then @1800ghz . the duron based system will oc higher but some other componet gave up i'm thinking it was the gfmx4000. the question i pose to you is , is switching video cards worth the loss of what ever extra features or power the xp2000 based system have worth the oc of the duron ? if so what are the actual benifits ?

    Well, the Athlon has more cache than the Duron, and that can play a role in the duron's overclocking. Also, the newer Durons (1.4-1.8GHz) are based on a newer core. If your XP2000+ is old enough like mine, it's got a Palimino core, and runs pretty hot.

    But as far as video cards go, what you've got now is an overglorified GeForce 2 MX. While the Duron is a value chip, it's still pretty good. The bottleneck is that GF4 MX4000. Unlike the GF4 Ti's, it doesn't have DirectX 8 hardware, and only has DX7 capabilities natively, which was the staple of the GF2 cards. If you're not gaming, that card is fine, but if you want to play anything decently, a new card will help more than a faster CPU.
