I looked on the fact sheet for this, and it said it was 133mhz in the ordering information (which makes 333 mhz effective) however, it did not tell me the MAXIMUM speed that it can attain. I just wanted to make sure, but i am almost certain that these guys did not underclock this thing, as they did in the MSI version with the samsung ram.

I will get a Vantec Iceberq4 cooling kit with a good active cooler and 4 aluminum ramsinks - i was wondering if i could reach 325/425 from 250/333 with this kit easily.
If you can geta FX 5200 and a Vantec Cooling kit and ramsinks, you can afford to step up to the next level of video cards....5600U/9600Pro/5700U/ can find at least of on those cards for under $150 on the internet.
