    What kind of speed can you get out of a GF3? Close to Ti500?

    You can usually overlock a GF3 past Ti500 stock specs of 240/500. Some common overclocking range that I've heard of is like 240/520 with stock cooling.

    Hmmm yeah i usually hear of people getting 230 + Core and 500 or so memory
    If your going to buy a GF3 STD you might wanna check to see if you can get a ti500 cause i saw a leadtek one for 737 bucks AUD :D

    My GeForce3 card clocks in at 230/500 with no atifacting at all. It may be able to handle higher, but the current setting works fine for me. :)

    The best way to go about OCing my Geforce 3 would be to use Coolbits? Or is there something newer now?

    Depends. Cool Bits doesn't work with all Nvidia Detonator drivers. However, you can use programs like Power Strip (which is great by the way) and NV Max, which will run on all drivers that I know of, and include a lof of other tweaking options.

    But if you just want straight and easy overclocking, Cool Bits works very well.
