Thread: better performance

  1. #1


    i overclocked this card (geforce 2 MX200) to core 207 and mem 173, from its stock speed. this is the most i can get out of this card without artifacts and glitches. Im still not gettin very good performance on this card though. for better performance should i turn down the core and up the memory or up the memory and down the core? I can get away with both but not sure which is better. Im not expecting miracles as this is a very low end card these days. thanks

    I don't know why ya'd want to even try and overclock that doublely memory crippled card. :confused:

    For a small outlay ya can get a quality R9000 (make sure that ya don't get a memory crippled one though) that will wipe the floor with ya present one, jump on it a few times and then kick it out the door plus have support for DX8. ;)

    I had that same exact card... In short it's terrible. Nothin I did could improve it's suckiness. Right now I have a Gefore 3 ti200 128 DDR and I am extremely pleased with it :O). My suggestion is to get a new card period. There is nothing you can do to make that POS card worth anything more than a stomping...

    Hope I helped :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    Are you sick of poor quality 128k mp3's that sound inferior to regular CD's you buy in the store? Do you long for the exact sound of a CD with absolutly no quality loss, and at practically half the size of a normal CD? CD's get scratched all the time, and FLAC is great for archiving all those good copies of your classic rock, and backing them up to save forever. FLAC unlike mp3, or ogg vorbis is what is called a lossless format. This means that no quality whatsoever is lost from the origianl disk. Lossy formats such as ogg vorbis, wmv, and moreover mp3 are usually flat sounding, and full of hissing and dullness because they discard and literally throw out important information that controls how good the CD will sound. Using FLAC will ensure the crystal-clear clarity that you can expect from a freshly opened CD. Instead of flimsy CD cases that snap and CD's that scratch easily, and are inevitably summoned to a poor scratched up death; FLAC files can be stored in a tough metal box known as your Hard Disk. FLAC putting life back into digital audio. If you own legit copies of CD's and seek for them pre-FLAC'd for all your digital listening needs please shoot me a PM for more information.

    OC'ing you're video memory will give you the best boost w/that card - but you really don't have much to work with there your nickels and dimes and get a Radeon9100:thumb:

    You can probably OC ur mx 200 pretty far, but you should make sure to have enough voltage available on your PS. In addition, you might want to purchase a case fan (or a better one if you have one already)...Also, get a better fan for the card, unless you want it to fry beyond recognition.

    truth is this peice doesnt have any cooling but a little plastic heatsink. i should just do myself a favour and get a whole new card. my case cooling is pretty decent anyways. 20 degrees C with just a stock fan. gotta love canadian winters in a basement.
