    Hello everyone! I've been recently debating over whether or not I should try to overclock my GeForce 2, and I started checking out sites for information about exactly how to do it. Unfortunately, I could not find a specific guide for my card, and I don't really want to risk damaging it. Can anyone give me some help with it? I have a GeForce 2 MX 200 with 64 Mb of on-board ram. (It's connected to an AGP slot) Also, I'm running a Pentium 4 at 1.8 Ghz and 512 Megs of Ram. Thanks again

    Get the OC tool of your choice, I use Riva Tuner, which can be had from Guru3D. Overclock by about 5MHz or so and then play or run something video intensive for awhile to be sure it's okay. Keep upping the speeds until you start locking up.

    Of course, since you're raping your potential with that card (64-bit memory interface instead of 128 or 256-bit), overclocking is not going to do you much good in the long run. You may not even see any performance from it.

    A GeForce4 MX440 would be cheaper, and fster if you don't need DirectX 8 support :)

    Lol, so which card do you think would be better? I've never heard that the MX 440 has any problems with DirectX, but I know most of the programs I use require it. Can anyone give me some more info on this? Also, if it isn't compatible with DirectX, does anyone know of a good card that supports DirectX, and is around $150? Thanks again.

    All the cards menitoned support some version of direct X, but the GeForce 3 and GeForce 4 Ti's all support Direct X 8, thus having more longevity. Assuming your pricing is in USD, you can easily find GF3 Ti200 cards for under $150. You can also probably find regular GF3's for around the $150 if not less. The Ti200 is slower than the regular GF3.

    Hi!
    Im absolutely new at this forum stuff, but ill tri to do my best...

    Im currently running my GF2MX200 @ 210/180 (core/mem) rock stable (being 175/143 stock speed) and improves 400 3DMarks in 3DMark2001SE (1215/1622). its running on a Duron@950Mhz, 384 Mb SDRAM PC133 CAS2, ECS K7VZA V1.2e and WinMe... i dont know how good is this (im newbie to OCing too) but i guess its not so bad with stock heatsink on the core and nothing in the ram chips, i did put a small 0.5Watt fan in the core heatsink but i guess if i put some ramsinks too ill be able to hit 210/200 (I can run windows at that speed but i get loads of artifacts after few seconds of 3DMark Bench....
    ah, btw, the vid card has 32 Mb SDRAM w/128bit bus (im not sure bout that last spec).

    Good luck with your OCing!!!! im anxious to get my new GF3Ti200 in three days!!!!!! then i hope to get some decent OCing and scores in 3DMark (and obviously some beautiful, smooth and photoreallistic DX8/8.1 framerates!!! :lips:

    That score kinda sucks. I could get near or a little over 3000 in 3dmark 2001 (1024x768x16) with a GF 2MX @ 220/210 and an 800Mhz Duron @ 1016MHz

    Oh, and to state again: the MX200 has a 64-bit data bus, SDR only. The MX and MX400 have a 128-bit data bus.
