Back to the jumpers again... Don't you know that those jumpers can cause your MB to fry? Your most touchy point is the temperature of the CPU chip. Do you have a way to see what it is when in the CMOS setup? If you do, OK! Maz temperature is about 55oC, even though they say 60oC. When you raise the voltage with the jumpers, you could create so much heat that your CPU chip will commit suicide. In your case there is protection against excessive heat. This probably is made for a much faster and more expensive computer. Once you have a way to monitor the temperature, carefully, you can try the higher frequency and WATCH the temp. You can increase the voltage to get up to two or three times the original frequency. This is called "overclocking". You will probably be requird to rebuilt the entire cooling tower, over the CPU socket, especially you will need a new and more powerful blower... One can get some extra life from an old computer, but now computers rae cheap when it comes to speed. Please let me know what are your decisions... That is how I am graded... Thank you for considering our help worthwhile!

Soyo sy-p4vgm motherboard agp slot video card highest MB capacity

Soyo has left the motherboard business. I find only specifications for AGP 4x port. I expect the board will support 512megs video RAM on an AGP card as AGP memory is a card limit.
See for more detail:
Your major worry is the 3.3v and 1.5 volt support.
