that cards going to be bottlenecked by your CPU though, and depending on your bios and windows, you may be dedcuting the amount of video ram from your system ram, go into your bios and look for an option like "memmory remapping" but it only works on 64bit vista

anyway heres a few pics of mine

and heres what crazy f-ers like me do to their heatsinks in order to increase cooling effeciency

now return the HP and build your own!:rocks:
Very interesting stuff, very interesting pictures.. Do you eventually throw all of that into a case? And it's out on your desk during assembly/prototyping/build?

Only a few more and I get to go home and play.. Tonight is flight sim 2002 experiment..
