How far can I take my FX 5500?
 
Hi,

I recently overclock my MSI FX 5500, and it score (3DMark01) 8.352. Vcore 301mhz & mem 446mhz. Can somebody give me additional suggestion to overclock it. If I reset the video & mem clock to standard it score 7520.

Thanks

I'm not quite sure what you're asking here. You've already overclocked the card and have the results. If you're looking for aditional performance, you really should consider buying a new card. Your 3DMark score is right in between the GeForce3 and GeForce4 Ti, just to put it in perspective. For the price they're asking for that card, you would be better off getting at least a GeForce FX 5700 Ultra, if not a 6600 GT.

This card is alright if you're not an enthousiast, but since your overclocking, I'll give you a tip on how far you can take your FX5500: exactly where you're at.

Can I run a 6600 GT in my mobo?

Thanks

PCI-E, doubtful.
AGP model, probably yes.

The AGP version you can, not the PCI-Express one.
