  1. ok i want to know if it's ok to turn up the voltage on and AGP card slot from the BIOS. I have a ABIT Suliro Geforce 4 Ti4200 OTES (Outside Thermal Exuast System) 128meg w/TV out. my current voltage is 1.5v in the BIOS. And im not talking a hudge jump in voltage i was thinking maybe 1.6 or 1.7 volts max. Please help if u can THANKS :)

    Yes, it's OK, but it is possible to damage a card by overvolting it.

    I'm guessing your'e doing it because you want a larger overclock?

    I wouldn't, but that's me.

    Only reason I migh add 1/10th would be a mobo that was running a litttle out of spec, and not proving enough on it's own.

    Be carefull, don't overdo it:)

    ok thanks i was only going to do it by 1/10th to see the performace upgrades... i just put my friends 512 DDR PC2100 into my computer and i already had 256 DDR PC3200 in it but it wasnt enough UT2003 takes FOREVER to load. that made a big diff. Just got a 3DMark2001 SE mark of 10009 :) so i dont think i will
