    DirectX 8 & Overclocking a Geforce2 GTS

    This is my system:
    Pentium II 400 (Multiplier Locked @ 4.0)
    256Mb PC100 SDRAM
    Supermicro P6SBA BX Mobo
    Geforce2 GTS 32Mb DDR @ 240 Core/390 Memory

    I have heard that there is a Beta version of DirectX 8 somewhere. Will this help me improve the performance of my system. I realise that because my mobo is only AGP2X, I will never have blistering 3DMark scores however I would like to beat the 3700 barrier. At the moment my highest score is 3679. After 240/392, the Geforce2 starts to go ****ty on me. I changed it to 230/395 and it still worked. Which should be better? I am desperate to get to either 240/400 or 230/400 but it just won't do it! What I am trying to say is: How can I get more performance out of my system without spending a ****load of cash? (or even better, no cash at all!)

    Yeah... bout' the only thing you wouldn't want to overclock, would be your clock...
    Unless you just want to be early all the time..

    He's got a locked PII... FSB is the way to go (TM)

    I'm sure I've got his manual somewhere...
