    OK, lets don't get into me buying a new motherbaoird cause mine dont have agp lol, i dont feel like just getting only a motherboard cause i got an HP Pavilion and i know its **** my mom bought it, but for now while i am working on my computer that im building i want to know how i can squeeze some more performance out of this garbage heap

    Viceo Card: 3D Prophet 9000 PCI 64mb ddr (the DVI-out is only on the PCI version :D )
    3D Marks in 2001 se: 3615
    CPU: Celeron 733mhz @ 906.5mhz
    RAM: 320mb pc-100 sd-ram
    Motherboard lmfao: Trigem, Cognac wow isnt that strange....
    CD-ROM: this one is good to lol 4x4x32
    ya i know its a bad system but its 3 years old now lol just a few upgrades

    now i want to know if i can get an unlocked bios or something so i can voerclock my video card or if i can possibly get another way to overclock my cpu it wont go higher than 906.5mhz i use a program called CPUFSB i belive and that is only because the bios on my motherboard is really bad...

    yes, yes, laugh all you want

    Actually 3615 points is not bad at all with that setup.. Unfortunatly I do think you have reached the limit of that cpu.. :(

    I would have to agree with the above statement. That is a very good score when you consider the system. A celeron processor that is probably only using a 66 mhz FSB, pc100 memory and a pci video card. You must have done some pretty good tweaking :thumb:

    Oh good luck on the new system. I would like to point out that not all HP systems were a POS I bought one for my kids about 3 years ago and believe it or not it actually had an asus mb and I never had any issues in fact with a few upgrades it is still chugging along at the in laws.

    CPU: AMD Athlon XP 2200+
    Motherboard: Chaintech Apogee 7VJL Deluxe
    Video Card: Radeon 9600 Pro
    Ram: Some Cheap DDR 2700 512mb :P
    PSU: 350 watts
    CPU Cooler: My Current Volcano 7 but with the fan on it lol ( i only have the heatsink on it, the fan wont fit betweet the psu and the board lol)

    I dunt think Radeon 9000 Pro is BIOS locked so you should be able to overclock by using Powerstrip or Rage3d tweaker.

    trust me its a Hercules card ATI locks the cores when they ship the GPUs off
    I overclock the pc reboots itself

    the non pro can now be overclocked with the latest version of rivatuner. http://download.guru3d.com/rivatuner/

    i have a hercules 3d prophet 9000 128 agp non pro and have been trying everything.flashing the bios works but then the cats dont recognise the card and will not load.

    note.rivatuner will only work untill ati release the next drivers so enjoy while you can.unwinder(maker of rivatuner)says he doesnt know why it works as he did not intend to make it so and he has no access to a 9000 np card for testing.

    to get it to work you need to select overclocking/more tab and set the clock frequency generation accuracy to high.

    works a treat:)

    Also PCI has only 1/16th the bandwidth of an 8x AGP card plus PCI doesn't have the main memory access that an AGP card has also.
