overclocking the AGP slot can screw up the mobo and/or the card. Theres no point in boosting the AGP slot frequency beyond 66MHz so don't do it.

Could very well be why your card is acting up though if you have already done this

Couldn't tell you. It gets raised because you're raising the CPU FSB, and the number 1 rule of thumb besides heat of course is if you can't lock your AGP/PCI bus then you don't need to overclock until you get a board which can lock those busses.

Like I said though without swapping parts I don't know what exactly it'd be, probably the card
