I have a ASUS 9520 with a NVIDIA 5200 chipset with 64-bit 128mb video ram...
I have overclocked the GPU from 250 to 305 and I have tested it using 3Dmark2005 and faced no problems...
Here are my scores:
speed|score
250 |241
305 |283
What do you think of the scores?
Should I overclock it any higher? My graphics card is passively cooled with a small heatsink and I do not have any fans near it....

Pls help me
Thanks
SJJ

The problem is I'm too poor to buy a new card

And with this 5200 I'm able to play latest games like Half life2, Oblivion, Broken sword4, titan quest and many more...
But now i wanna try to play these games a higher graphics settings...
Some of these games lag a lot at the lowest settings too, so I wanna reduce the lag....

If I install 2 8cm fans just below the card to blow the heatsink and the ram, is it safe to overclock more?

The thing about overclocking is that you can only juice out at least two to three more frames per second in most games.. Now if you don't have the money for a new graphics card you are out of luck. Also filling out your information at the bottom would help us diagnose your problem better. Cpu bottlenecking can also restrain your graphics card from it's full potential. At that note i would advise download these drivers. http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_93.71.html .
This could help but your best bet is to buy a new computer or build your own.

I don't think the CPU is the bottleneck... My CPU is Celeron 2.53ghz..
And I already have the latest drivers installed

I have filled out the PC specs form...

Comparing a 6200 to a 5200 is like comparing "The Iron Giant", to a pebble...

This is my aquamark score after overclocking the GPU to 300mhz:

GFX:888
CPU:6015
Total:8284

See? The CPU is not the bottleneck...
And it seems like the 9250 is a bit better than 5200....

Sorry US$35 is too much for me... I'll rather get a new one if I had the money...
