what you were doing is overclocking plain and simple....in some cases no difference is noticeable....chnaces are if your on stock cooler its overheating especially with an old card like that.

I have a 9550 also and I beleive your memory is too high. The mem on these things is very touchy. I had games start crashing left and right when I had my mem too high.

Agreed...heat at this point is likely your enemy. You can get aftermarket HS's for it. See, when you run ATItool and perform the max core/mem settings it analyzes for artifacts. When it starts to experience them it stops increasing the frequency however the heat levels may not peak during that time. When you go to run a game needless to say you are not playing for just a few minutes so the heat builds up and causes problems.

Hmm I thought 3200+ had a maximum multipliyer of 10 .. so an fsb a 228mhz is 2.28~ ghz .. not 2.51 ..

As the others said, start by finding the max with ATI Tools instead of just setting your clocks at what you want .. this way you get to see up to where you comp. is stable ..

AMD a64 3200+ on CPU-Z ( HTT 208 Multiplayer X11 and a 2288 mhz standard)

..All i want is to play hl2 ..but the game keeps shutting down with errors ..i recently bought it ..the cs source but it just doesnt work..nothing does..

only America's Army works Perfectly ..u dont know if u know there graphics buts it GORGEOUS i got it running at
1028x7xx and its PERFECT i got all the things maxed out exept Vsync ..

Did you check the max clocks you can get by letting ATI Tools Find Core Max and Find Mem Max run ?

Btw, it's written 2x265mb in your sig instead of 2x256 .
