stock card is 500MHz core speed and 1GHz memory clock speed....so when he says 550/1.2 he's talking about core being OC'd to 550Mhz and the memory being at 1.2GHz

Some AGP cards are 900MHz by default though..depends on the brand, I know eVGA is 900MHz by default.

it's common for them to reach high 70's and mid 80's celcius....I wouldn't go above 85C personally.

But which brand should i get to OC, and if the temps are like that would a cooler be a good investment into it or what.

did they ever wind up making an NV Silencer for the AGP version though? I know they hadn't when I had a 6600GT....they only had it for the PCI-E at the time
