Nvidia 6200TC isn't a gaming card, u need a gaming v-card. Do u have DDR2 800? If u don't have it then u can't overclock because of mem mult(2.66).

The video card is an old, low end TurboCache card, there's no point overclocking it. If you're unhappy with the graphics performance, get a new card.

It would help to know which DDR2 RAM you have- 533MHz, 667MHz, 800MHz, etc. Depending on which you have, it can limit the overclocking options. For the following overclock suggestions, I'm going to assume you at least have DDR2-667. Two things to keep in mind when overclocking an LGA775 system is the faster the FSB, the better the performance, & you should always strive for a CPU:DRAM frequency ratio of either 1:1 or 1:2.

The default settings for the E5200 are 12.5 x 200MHz @ 800MHz FSB. Your board supports up to 1333MHz FSB. Since the E5200 overclocks quite well, you should have no problem running it at 3.0GHz (9 x 333MHz) @ 1333MHz. The RAM frequency should be 333MHz (667MHz DDR) to run in sync at 1:1. If you have DDR2-800, it should be underclocked to DDR2-667 speed. A 1:2 ratio is not possible.

Being able to overclock will depend on whether your BIOS has all the required options or not. Here's a generic list:

CPU frequency = 333MHz
CPU multiplier = 9.0x
RAM frequency = 333MHz (667MHz DDR)
CPU:DRAM ratio = 1:1
PCIe frequency = 100MHz
Spread Spectrum = disabled
SpeedStep = disabled

EDIT: I didn't look at the manual but if you have the 2.66 memory multiplier as mentioned by kuwese & don't have the option to set it to 2.0, your overclock options will be very limited.

"ok.....which card would be better but not much costle.....thanks"

The 6200TC card sucks, not to mention it's old. If you're looking for a gaming card, here's an article that will help you make a good choice:

"i cant change cpu multiplier to 9.0x from 12.0x...how can i do that"

The setting may not be an option. I'll download the manual & have a look at the BIOS chapter.

i cant find cpu multiplier and cpu: dram ratio....

there is a setting "ratio actual values" which is 12.0...i changed that to 9 and all that which u listed in post but when restarting it shoes CMOS CHECKSUM BAD......what to do now

You overclocked incorrectly. Unplu the power cord, open the case & use the ClearCMOS jumper to reset the BIOS. Then start from scratch.

Start over. You need to read more on overclocking. The settings always need some tweaking, so no matter what numbers we supply you with, you will need to understand what you are doing. We may be able to do some of the math and direct you along a path, but the actual work needs you to understand the reason behind most of those numbers since every piece of hardware is different (even if someone has the exact same hardware, just copying what they did will not always work, especially if you are pushing the overclock harder).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
