I have a few older games I play and they run a bit easier on my nostalgia machine than on my Vista 64 machine. My daughter had a Dell E771a monitor that I am using for this older machine. It is very clear and crisp. I didn't mean to steal the original OP's post. I put a Zalman after market cooler on my 6800GT maybe that would help keep your 6800GT going for a bit longer.
