    Gfx Card to buy ~$80

    alright i know every other thread is exactly like this one, but i seem to have a tighter budget than most everyone else (for a gift for my bro). I dont really care about AA, just pure performance at 1024x768 and particularly Call of Duty. Im looking at 9600SE, Geforce FX5600, and what about the...

    fan size adapter

    if i only have a 60mm spot for a case fan on the front of my case, will it be helpful to use a 60mm to 80mm converter and use an 80mm fan? I know an 80mm fan pushes more air, but will it be more effective?

    quake 3 probs

    alright, i have a radeon 9700, and quake 3 used to run like butter, but now that ive installed the 3.9's, it freezes every time i play. Could this have anything to do with turning off fast writes (for Call of Duty) or are the 3.9's just pos's?
