G'day
I have an older system that I just purchased a video card for. Up till now I had been using the onboard video. After installing it I noticed it acting a little odd. I checked with tech support for the card and they determined my psu was not enough for the new card. I found another psu through a co worker no problem. The thing is he said that I should back my video card off a bit as it is overclocked.
These are my specs:

VIA VT8601T Appollo PLE 133T
Biostar M6VLQ
celeron 1.3 Ghz.
192mb SDRAM
NVIDIA Geforce FX 5500 OC
Win 98SE

Should I in fact slow the card down and if so just how do I go about getting to it?
Any advice would be appreciated.

Umm, the manufacturer overclocked it. I'm sure they tested it and ensured that it was properly cooled, so you should'nt have to worry.

The stock speed is 270mhz but it is supposed to be set to 290mhz. This was done by the manufacturer.
