OK Yes this is total cheating, but I bet a few were wondering.
Motherboard is Epox EP-MVP3G5.
I think it's still fair game. Thanks for the tests, they paint a nice picture on what's going on here. I presume 3x100 was unstable eh?

Considering this PCI variant of the AGP8x version of MX440 probably came out rather late, I don't think I can really go much farther back when it comes to using older drivers, 43.45 are already from early 2003.
I use 40.72 WHQL drivers on my AGP8x MX440 and they work just fine.
This is with an actual AGP card mind you, so I'm not sure if it applies to your PCI version as well. Might still be worth trying it out.
Apparently I could go one step further back with 40.71. Tempting to give it a try and perhaps even earlier drivers, attempting to force vanilla MX440 drivers, but I just can't justify the time I'll have to spend 😜.
