    dear friends,
    i want to upgrade my AGP video card .....as i cant play the newer games...my machine cofiguration is

    VIA 82c 596B CHIPSET motherboard (P6 BAT Me) 133 bus speed
    P3 600 MHz Processor
    512 L2 CACHE Memory
    128 MB SDRAM
    SiS 6326 AGP 4MB Video Card

    will my motherboard support newer 32 MB video cards....? to play games and can i raise the processing speed of the processor to support it...and to what speed it is safer to increase...i have heard that i will have to increase up to 1 GHz ?

    if it has a agp 4x slot u can ..there is no problem i guess...
    even if u have 2x slot u can put a card .....

    and about overclocking ...i wouldn't suggest u that as few old hand in the forum said ...don't suggest ppl to overclock their system ........

    but i wouln't suggest u that coz of u r processor is already too old ....and it could take serious damage doing that..! the newer processor can be overclocked to 20% of their frequency ..or max 30% coz they are made to support few high clock frequency
    but u r saying to go to 1000 MHz from 600 MHz.....thats is 400mhz overclocking ....for ur processor ...in ur case ur r talking about 2/3 x100 =66.% of overclocking .....do u know what it means .....?
    plz man don't do it ....!

    off to "never ever" land
    u can even get pci cards but they are more expensive than agp ones ...
    suggest a nice upgrade dude
    ud be better off with a new sys. with onboard graphics as well ...
    i dun recommend overclockin either
    tho the kimit is not set .. its all by trial and error ..
    but i think i can be sure in sayin ocing 600 to 1gig is killing it ..
