  1. hey guys i got scammed into buying a geforce fx5200 and i want to know how i can improve the little gaming power that i have, i have the 128mb model and it is in 8x agp also i already looked at my bios to see if there was a option for 4x agp verse 8x agp but there was none, however i did find this agp aperature and it was set at 64mb and i have a 128mb card so should i set it to 128 and what exactly is the apg aperature

    ps i also wanna know if i can overclock my card and is it safe to do?

    yea 5200 ugghh

    I have a 5200 as my back up card :blackeye: , thats to bad you got scammed...but now for the good news, overclock a 5200 i quite easy. You can use a utility or use coolbits (which i prefer) as seen here


    BTW-you should set the AGP aperature to 128 mb

    Yes set your size to 128 since this is the size of the ram of the card.
