    I'm throughing a 128mb ati 8500 (not the all in wonder version) into the computer i'm building. Should I leave the card as is or should i upgrade the fan etc, even though i probably won't be overclocking this system? It's going in a epox 4g4a with a p4 2.4 (533 mhz edition)

    Leave it as is. Unless you're in for some extreme overclocking, just leave it be...espcially considering you won't be overclocking it.
