Since im getting a new graphics card anyway, i thaught i might stuff around with the one ive got, its a xfx geforce 2 mx400, 64mb of ram.

i installed the nvidia overclocking registry entry that was on the xfx disk, and went from there. I slightly turned up the frequency, and noticed a big change in quake 3, though the video seems to be running faster than the sound!

is there anyway i can overcome this? and does anybody have any tips/advice on overclocking?

PS: I have an open case with a big case fan blowing onto the graphics card, if cooling was an issue XD

i think.... hardware acceleration sounds appropriate, but i think i recall that you needed to put it in software mode for it to work proper for some of your stuff.

For this specific chip OC will hardly have any effect or at all (mx400 features ****y memory), still you can try using RivaTuner (http://www.guru3d.com/index.php?page=rivatuner).

Turned off overclocking because of Apofiss's post.
The sound has slightly improved but is still out of sync. And i think the game is overall running a bit fast. Its only on a 1.7ghz, 1024x512 etc.

could it be a software issue?:)
