Can this be done feasibly by someone who on a scale of 1-10 in computer mechanics is a n00b? I'm looking for a little bit more performance out my PowerBook, especially when it comes to gaming. If only there were something akin to ATiccelerator, but alas, no one has written an nVIDIAccelerator.

Graphiccelerator as its now called will overclock an AGP 5200. Don't see why it wouldn't do yours too.

Unfortunately, there's no support for the Go5200 in Graphiccelerator... Yet. I emailed the developer with the ROM I dumped, and hopefully, he'll add support... Sometime... After all, it is the card (to my knowledge) that was used in all of the 12" PowerBook G4s.

As it turns out, according to the developer, ROM dumping and flashing with built-in video cards doesn't work. It has something to do with the dumped ROMs always being "corrupted."
