I overclocked my e-GeForce 7100 GS just to see what it would really do to it because I got a new Graphics Card XFX Geforce 8600 GT. anyway after i overclocked the old one the screen went crazy with weird colors and the screen look jumbled up. I was like damn. So i put in my new graphics card and it worked fine. Then when i start my comp in the morning (after many hours of the comp off)the screen is the same when i O'c me old card and i have to shut it off and turn it back on so it can go normal. Then my games started to run slower and i had to lower the settings. Did my computer get worse when i o'c my old card ? I dont kno what I did wrong. pls help

Just stick with the new Graphics cards its faster. You may have pushed your graphics card a little to much, at that what settings did you push the gpu and mem to? And how was you stress testing it eachtime?

The 7100GS is weak garbage...no amounting of overclocking can change that. The 8600GT is a MUCH better card, but it also requires more power & eMachines are not known to have good power supplies. Did you remove the old graphics drivers before installing the new card? Which Forceware drivers are you running...v169.25?
