Must say, bad part is that the Pentium 4 in there will probably bottleneck the card pretty badly
but at least I know that it'll push the system as far as it can go graphically while matched with the P4.
I'm sure my mom's 2D games will surely see the benefits of the card!
Also, anybody else have heat problems with the Predator case in general? I find that it just does not cool very well. The 80mm side fan doesn't do very well because of the grating and the front fan i barely feel any intake. And almost all of the time they are blowing out pretty hot air. (compared to my previous TT armor case setup)
The overall design just seems to neglect major heat dispersal. Now, this could be because of the overheating GPU, but overall I still don't feel it cools itself very well.
Any opinions welcomed
