I lately find myself considering replacing the Radeon card with either: Could turn that into a killer sleeper rig. And then there is the odd-one-out black GX on my desk with a 1. I did a swing by the microcenter near Philadelphia after my classes optuplex Tuesday and picked up the parts to get my GX version up and running to my satisfaction.
