I tried playing Doom 3 with this card set at 32MB of shared memory and the game was unplayable. Should I increase the shared memory to 64MB of 128MB? I also found the ATITool utility to overclock the video but have yet to use it. Don't want to fry the chip......anyone use this? Here's what the log states after being ran:
2005-07-16 16:24:58ATITool v0.24 started.

Too bad I can't monitor the temp. According to ATI the 200m has a 350MHz core and has 128 bit memory. I would assume it can be overclocked but not much due to it being a laptop.
Anyone with other ideas to increase performance?
Oh, yea, this is my first post....what a cool forum!!! Picked up my first laptop just 2 days ago.
It's a Compaq Presario M2000. Picked it up for 549.99 before tax and after the $30.00 rebate. I have hosed the O/S, reinstalled, and plan on reformatting to install Win XP Professional in a week when I get the software.
Thanks for any responses - C_Fletch
