I need some help.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok, first off here are my system specs:


ASUS A7V600-X KT600 Motherboard
AMD Athlon XP-3200 2.2GHz 512K 400MHz
Thermaltake VOLCANO 10+ Highest Performance Cooler
Kingston 1Gb PC3200 400MHz CL3 DDR Memory
ATI Radeon x700 Pro 256mb AGP Core 425 / Memory 432

Note: I can succesfully overclock the cord to: Core 454 and memory to 510


Now, I've been looking around on this forum and one of the posts was a sticky, and it was Sticky: Post your ATI Tool fps!

And in that it shows people posting there FPS rates with there cards, in the 3d preview. Currently, after applying the overclock'd rates.. I only get max around 125fps and 130fps, can this be right?! Is there something that I'm doing wrong with my card? I'm running it at AGP 8x, its 256mb I mean shouldn't i get any more fps then that?

My aim screename is jdawg353 if you have any tips for me. I'll be watching this post all day, please reply! Thanks in advance. Ps: Im new!

no that looks about right to me... its only an X700... so keep in mind that its not the fastest most powerfull card out..lol

anything over ~60FPS is morethan enough because after that you cant see a difference... its just a number after about 60

I have, I had mine running at about 2.45ghz, my chip was not so good, it seems alot of the xp 3200+ chips didn't oc nearly as well as the 2500+. Being that you have a via chipset it may not have agp/pci locks so you would be somewhat limited but hey, give it a shot.
