Hey Obi... no offense intended, but maybe start with a video card with a bit more horsepower? You can get into the ATI 9600s for pretty cheap these days, I'm running a crappy 9200 myself, but it beats my old Nvidia MX420 ANY day of the week... just a thought.

hey Stone, indeed you're right... last week i bought a new grafa, but it was not so good... i discovered I didn't had a PCI-E slot on my pc.. but working on it...

I have a question for you since I see you have 9 fans? what kind of case do you have... and how low, in temp, can you get your case.. I'm running MBM 5 already for a couple of days, and have a case temp from 29 till 44 after a couple of hours .... was curious how it is with 9 fans ...

I have a Coolermaster CMStacker with 2 120mm fans and 1 80 fans, 350 W power ...

hey Stone,

I followed your advice an just bought an ati radeon 9600 pro 256mb

This should considerably improve performance .... :-)

Can't wait to install it, I will have it tomorrow...
