    i got a 3d mark score of 9160 with a radeon 8500LE @294/288 and 1800+ @ 1.68ghz. Think i can get any higher?

    When I had my Radeon8500 Retail paired with my Xp1700+ I was able to get in the 10300 to 10500 range - I had my CPU clocked about the same as yours & my video card clocked a bit higher.....so to answer your question - yes, I think you probably could do a bit better.

    If you haven't done so already - the Radeon pencil-trick voltage mod should let you Oc your video card a bit more w/o instability and/or artifacts

    what OS & drivers are you using?

    it's not a mod for your mother board - it's actually for your video card
    there's a couple of resistors on the back of the card - if you put a stripe or 2 of graphite on them, you can begin to lower their effective resistance & supply more voltage to your core & video memory, thereby allowing you to OC them higher

    there are also some specific points on the back of you card where you can measure the voltage being supplied to your core & memory - if you have a voltmeter

    the main reason LE's don't OC as high as retail 8500's is that they're supplied with less voltage

    I'll have to see if I can find the link again.....
