Is this as good at it gets without Overclocking?
Yes, these are the correct default settings.QUOTE
I'm guessing I can't push my FSB to 166 (333) and match the Ram (333), without having to change the multiplier to 9 (or there abouts). But will the CPU support this?
Possible. Just try to select a lower multiplier and then reboot. It will either accept the new multi or it won't(i.e. it will just keep the default x11.5 multi)...no harm done
Depending on your CPU's type/model, you might even be able to just raise the FSB to 166MHz without changing the multiplier, although i wouldn't recommend doing that if you're using the retail/boxed heatsink & fan that came with your processor.QUOTE
Are there any issues with my FSB running at 266 and Ram at 333?
Stability-wise, no....it should run just fine.
However, running your FSB and memory frequency asynchronously(i.e. at different speeds) will actually decrease performance on NForce2-based motherboards, so i suggest you set your memory frequency('DRAM clock'
to '100%' or 'synch' (or just 133/266MHz if none of the aforementioned options is available) in BIOS.QUOTE
and Finally is 66 still the standard rate for AGP slot?
Yes, 66MHz is the default clockspeed for the AGP-slot.
Overclocking it wouldn't make much sense, either, since you would not get any noticable increases in performance.
