People are probably asking why I'm testing on an overclocked system. The answer is a simple one; the cards are tested on an overclocked system in order to eliminate as many bottlenecks as possible. Also, testing was limited to resolutions of 640x480 and 1024x768. Anyone with a GeForce2 MX400 is really not going to see any advantages by testing at a higher resolution.

Let's take a look at what the synthetics have to say first, up next is 3DMark 2001.
