    This sucks. I totally didn't expect it.

    It's running fine but I know it's gonna die soon. Sometimes I get green dots all over the monitor and the computer seems to freeze and the ATI VPU Recovery thing restores it... :hs:
    Last night, it made some funky ass noise. I thought it was my harddrive at first, but when I put my ear against the front of the case (I have a hole and the harddrive is next to it.) I didn't hear anything. When I moved to the side of the computer and moved lower, the noise got significantly louder. :noes:

    So I am certain that it is my graphic card and for now, I think I'm just gonna try to cool it better.

    In case it dies, recommend me a card that's a good bang for the buck.
    I currently have an ATI Radeon x1600PRO.
    That's the 512MB DDR2
