    Hello, orderd myself a new pc recently, current its in the post so im doing some final reading on the bits ive ordered to makesure i know whats what when it arrives.

    With the motherboard im getting 'P5LD2-VM' mATX i apparently need to overclock the PCIe to about 120MHz inorder to get the CPUs FSB above 224MHz, would this be safe to do with an x1900XT in my PCIe slot? or is this likly to nuke the card?

    You should be able to lock the PCIe clock in the BIOS.
    I wouldnt reccomend doing this, could screw it all up and ruin your day.
