The graphic card I am currently using is an Gforce FX 5200. I know how to overclock it, but what I would love to know is how much shoud I overclock it (I don't want to damage my PC) If you know how much I should overclock this card, please reply!

agp voltage apparently helps very little.. thats what i've heard though, never tried it myself

plus when you start upping voltage you risk damaging the card

I have Geoforce FX 5200. I overclock 270 core and 608 Mem. I clicked on Test changes and the screen is going crazy. It will not let me click on anything. I'm able to go in sefe mode. I removed Nvidia software, but I still have the same problem.
Thanks,

AGP voltage will do nothing in terms of helping to overclock your vid card. it is more likely to fry it.

If possible maybe you should reinstall the NVIDIA software and lower the clock speeds (might do something)

I think I have the lates driver from November. Should I install the beta driver, but I have to do it in Safe mode. Normal mode will not let me do anything
