My System Specs

I don't see it being to hot provided you purchase one that does not have the single slot cooling it will be very noisy and hot, I know that most people have opted including the manufacturers for better cooling on the 8800GT. I suggest looking into a version that incorporates a dual-slot cooling heatsink if you can spare the room in the case.

As far as the internet issue goes, I am not sure where you are located but I am in Toronto and Bell has put a usage cap on each persons line, if you're friend has unlimited usage then he's paying 25.00 bucks a month for it and its not neccessarily free as you might of thought. Getting ripped off as far as I am concerned is a Canadian pass time the corporations have come to love and get rich by.
