Almost thinking? That's a start.

BTW, they get the new hospital on Marshall Rd. done yet? I haven't been there in a year.

Nowdays most mid-level video cards are 256 bit... I know mine (8800GTS 320bit) is worse than GTS 250, but I wonder if switching to higher RAM and lower bit is the right way to upgrade. Perhaps I should wait for 512 bit cards to go down in price?

iirc GDDR5 ram @ 256bit is the equivalent of 512bit.

Thx IRQ. I guess you are suggesting I should get Radeon HD4870 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 one instead of Geforce 250GTS? Is it compatible with EVGA NForce 650i Ultra motherboard?

the cooler of Calibre. if the heat pipes can move like that they're not making good contact with the base. it may look cool but it's just stupid.
