    I'm new to this over clocking buisness, and am looking to start by trying my gfx card. I have a nVidia GeForce 3, and using Coolbits, I was wondering how far I would be able to increase my clock frequencies without overheating and causing crashes on my computer.

    I was just wondering if there are any other forumers here with the same set up as me, and could they suggest some figures to OC to? I know this sounds noobish, its 'cos I am, so don't hammer me too hard folks :hammer: :cry: :p

    Just did a 3D Marks test and got: 6536, how does this compare with the card I have? :)

    It's very hard to say what range ya'll get and that's made worse by the fact that ya left out the rest of the hardware. :D

    Heh, its probably the fact that I'm running WinXP Pro that was upgraded from Win ME, and on neither of the OS's was the machine ever defragged :rolleyes:

    I went to defrag a month ago, but apparently you need at least 15% HDD space free, I only had 7%, so it only did a partial defrag. I'm considering formatting soon when I get my 120gb HDD to go with my current 37gb :)

    That maybe a prob just there but with XP make sure that the properties of the os' performance settings are set to "For Best Performance" as the default settin' will suck badly. ;)
