My video card stats have me at 300/800 for my card bus speeds on a Fx5900. Are these the right or correct speeds with no overclocking applied for this card? I always thought it was suppose to be 400or 450 for the first speed data...
Doesn't really matter much as the card works just fantastic in all areas anyways...

How did he get to that speed???? I swap out a 2500 and a 3200 for fun in my system.
Can you let me know his settings?? I can't get past 2350 with a 2500 unlocked. Maybe it's the mobo I am using, K7N2 Delta ILSR. I have Corsair XMS 3200 C2PT 2X512 at 5,3,3,2. Is the card oc'd?
Also the best I could do with my oc'd 3200 and oc'd 9800 pro (ATI) was 19100 and 6700 respectively.
I am using air cooling.... Aeroflow... lots of case fans, etc, so temps have yet to be a problem. Just can't get the system stable above about 2350 with the 2500 and 2400 with the 3200.

You want to OC to 2600Mhz?
Ok do that.
Be sure to get a good PSU too... Chiefteci, A-Openit, Enlight, Enermax or smth like that good.
My friends friend uses ln2 to cool

Got a 1069 not bad. Right now my cpu is bottlneck for graphics card.
Here are the specs
1Ghz Athlon(upgrading to xp2100+ soon)
geforcefx 5600xt 128mbram ddr 128bit
512mb of pc133 ram 2x256
A one GHZ processor will not get the job done....I have a 1.3 P4 in my old system ( still have ) and I upgraded all the way to the 2.8GHZ....Even with the 5600 card you would be ok if your processor was at least a 2.2 GHZ and above....
The athlon XP2500 is very good and is a hugh upgrade from where you are at and they are cheaper than the pentiums as I guess thats what you like....This processor would be fine.
