I know that that Specific card can have its bios flashe to bring it up to FX5500 speeds but that was for an AGP bus type im not really sure if it works the same With PCI cards.

I don't think it does, because I believe the PCI inteface does not supply enough power for the FX 5500... sorry bud, looks like you're stuck. You could still overclock it, though.

Yes thats a good point i didnt take into consideration the Difference in power output between the PCI bus and AGP bus.

Well the problem is that every time I overclock my graphic card even 5 mhz I will get artifact in games like half life 2 or source.

The PCI bus is no issue, because there is a PCI 5700LE. You can try to flash to bios, but the only thing that will change is the clock speeds. If you are getting artifacts 5mhz over stock, the card will be a mess at 5500 speeds.
