first of all, your CPU is locked @7.5 is it is a 1 gig CPU. It should post to 750 when the FSB is set to 100. All Intel i gig CPU's are locked @7.5x. 7.5 x 133 = 1000.

You can't change the multiplier on a modern Intel chip, so you are stuck @7.5x. It really doesn't matter what you wet the x to in the bios, the CPU will default to 7.5x. It should be set to 7.5 in the bios, just to prevent checksum problems at boot.

It sounds like you are in over you head right now. The first thing you chould do is get a handle on the jumpers and the soft menu. What bothers me is that you say it boots to the 667, that either is a PIII600EB (133 x 4.5x) or a Celey 667 (66 x 10).

Are you completely sure it is a 1 gigger CPU??? Are you sure it is a PIII and not a Celey?? If your soft menu has a choice, you should disable something called 'speed error control' and/or 'chassis intrusion detect', tha will allow the bios to ignore any setting that is not normal.

As far as adding a second PCI video card, it will work.

Do you have a motherboard manual or have you visited the M/B's manu. site for a PDF version of the motherboard manual? It always helps to have the manual for jumper settings if you are not intimately familiar with the inside of a box.

We need more information regarding your motherboard and the settings you are using. You need to be specific in that area. Get it running with a vid card only to start, then move on to the final setup of the other cards, don't put them in your machine until you got it running right.

It is hard to make a call until we know more.
