expanding GF 7300LE ?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
ok 1st, I'm not pro with graphic cards so bare with me
2nd, don't laugh to my question

so I have nVidia GeForce 7300 LE (Asus EN7300LE), PCIEx 1x (so its not AGP)
and being low end card it has Memory Bus Width of 64-bit
the one thing I know since in past I had better cards (but AGP)
they were 128bit and all 3D games were playable nicely

but with these one everything chokes
so with seeing many topic on various nVidia cards being unlocked
to expand pipelines and what not...

my Question is as absurd it is... can this card be with some tool or modded
driver "hacked" to "expand"/unlock memory bus to 128bit
or it is fixed to 64bit and nothing can be done ?

You can't unlock it.

7300LEs are based off G72, not G73, so it can't even unlock to a 7300GT. (Just in case anyone is thinking of that.)

even if it could unlock, it probably would not perform better, 64bit is wide enough for whatever slow/small amount of memory on that card

What?
As bad as the 7300LE is, there's no reason that it should be outperformed by a low end card from several generations prior.
