I was wondering if there is any program out there that can accelarate pci ports cause i have a g-force fx 5200 pci and some games run really nice on it and then others slow down a tad then other games the game it self is fine but fmv clips go all pausey thtats why i was wondering if there is a pci port accelator instead of resorting in over clocking the card. thanks in advance.

Watch what you do with it. I only had mine running 40 Mhz faster on the GPU than stock, and 6 months after setting it that way, the card was fried.:p

thanks for the advise so i guess there is no way to acelrate the port it self (not the card).

unfortunately there isnt a way apart from overclocking, the PCI bus can only go as fast as the frequency allows, which at 33mhz (standard) it can only push about 250mb/sec, but to be blunt with you the FX5200 pretty much sucks, i wouldnt even attempt new games on it, you are better off trying to get yourself an AGP card, even the Geforce 6200 or a Radeon 9600 would give you an improvement :)

To enhance the suckiness of fx5200, even older GeForce4 Ti cards were faster than that... :p

Outside of possible PCI enhancement options of your motherboards bios, (what they do is beyond me though) there is no way to improve PCI slot speed as stated.
