    it's been a long time since I've seen a video card without a fan or a massive heat pipe. What video card do you have? I think I've seen it in another thread but I can't remember atm ...it's been a busy day ;)

    you can get a replacement hsf for it if it needs it, but I've never needed to replace one so you'll have to ask someone else for a good suggestion.

    :cheers:

    ooo... a Fx card with out a fan? that can't be good... :(

    even my old Radeon 7200 had a fan on it

    I'd suggest you find a replacement for it (or sell it to some unsuspecting person and get a better card :cool: ) unless someone know's something about 5200's that I don't :shrug:

    aside from the fans previously mentioned, the only things that you could really benefit from upgrading would be your video card and a good HSF (if you start to seriously OC)

    I'm not the best person to ask about Intel CPUs and associated motherboards ...I'm likely to tell you to get an nforce2 mobo and a good Athlon XP ;)

    ...but I'm sure the Intel crowd would tell you that you may want to consider on 800 MHz FSB CPU and a supporting mobo; but as I said I'm not the one to ask on that category

    I was wondering, why a network card when u already have it? Also do you use dialup or fax? If not, yank that modem.
