Oh, and its a Visiontek, so lifetime warranty.
I had been thinking of getting a new mobo, 2x2GB and a new case, maybe even mATX, but why? I have a great case, solid performance from this mobo/memory/CPU combo to last until mainstream next-gen quads and DDR3 comes down in price.
I even got a wife approval by using her logic. I told her the memory mobo and new case would have been $100 more than the new video card, so I am saving money by buying a new card. HAH!
LOL! Mention "bargain" to my wife, I'm good to go.
Tax free weekend here in MA, second week in Aug I think. That plus reward zone = new toy for grey, maybe 2 of them....
