Thanks Wes
I'll give my system details again:
Gigabyte GA-7VT600 1394
Sempron 2400
Kingston Value 512 Mb pc3200
Maxtor 160 Gb SATA
Gigabyte NVidia FX5200
PSU Seasonic 350w. +3.3V-28A, +5V-30A, +12V-17A.

Are you saying I should ditch the Sempron and get an Athlon XP 3000
400fsb?
Its a nice idea.
Or do I ditch the board and go for an Nforce2 chipset which locks the
PCI/AGP frequencies at 33/66 MHz?

No.

I wouldn't do either. What I'm saying is that you should be able to use a
200MHz (or higher up to about 215MHz) with the setup you have. According
to the Gigabyte site, your board officially supports a 200MHz FSB. And to
officially suport it, it would have to have the 6 divider need to keep the
PCI clock normal. You just need to figure out how to set it to 200MHz.
