Assuming that the AGP bus cannot be detuned to match the FSB, what video card manages the boosting?

can't get the AGP bus to match that of the fsb. Would need way too much planning and engineering to get that done. Basically you've got a few options. Now if your board can handle a high AGP freq, i.e 78mhz, then it's very good. It's all up to the card at that point and only a few companies that I've seen have manage to gain respect for their capabilities:

1.) Leadtek
2.) Gainward
3.) Asus (Deluxe series, why? Cause they never sting on the trimmings)

Visiontek handled it's freq @ 80

The eVGA i'm using now is also @ 80 :D

My fsb-201

AGP/PCI
80/40

Thank you for your input gentlemen, much appreciated.

Terrancelam-

That was a missatatement on my part. I meant to say a AGP that could be independantly detuned so that a video card could work with an increased FSB.
