Now that'* funny. This was actually made because I figured a case is kind of a waste of money if a cardboard box will do just as well. This is true.

I had a 7800GS, but I sold it and put in a 6800LE. I think I'll get a 9800SE and sell the 6800 for profit. It'* a cardboard box PC, so it doesn't need much. What do you have in teh way of AGP?

I once took a 250MHz GeForce4 MX440 with 400MHz of 64-bit DDR memory up to 480/560MHz with a simple AGP 1.5-1.8V increase. It was faster than an FX 5200 by 2000 points in 3DMark01.
