I've read in some threads that raising V-core can help solve issues with gf4 cards...and since I'm getting abit desperate here I'm willing to try anything (almost) I have 360w on my comp so it shouldnt be a problem with power, even though everyone says amd xp 2100 and gf4 4400 takes alot of juice...
My question is how do I raise the V-core and what can happen?

Raising the V-core is applying more voltage to your processor's core. It can be done through Bios. Raise it minimally, as processor destruction can result.

If there is no bios option to do it, you have to jumper the vcore from the mobo. If there are no jumpers, you can't raise the vcore.
You can safely run the cpu at vcore of 1.85V. I recall the default is 1.75V for those too (my xp1800+ is 1.75V by default. asus feels it's low and raises the vcore to 1.85V automatically and I can't change it to anything lower.)
Raising the vcore generates alot more heat. My processor idles around 55-57 and is 65-70 under full load. I'm sure those would be ~5C lower if I could set the vcore to what it's supposed to be.
