im getting a x800xl in like a month
You'd need to change your motherboard then, the x800XL is a PCI-E card, and your board is an AGP based board.

Although Nubius pointed out an AGP x800XL earlier, I'm not sure about the availibility though.

There are a few x800 xl agp cards out now.

One is the powercolor although it is more pricey than the other ones right now, and the other for only $7 more is the ATI all-in-wonder version which looks pretty sweet.

i guess pci-e isnt any better though. seeing as how we dont even use all the bandwidth it allows so there is no difference in performance. but i agree.

anyhoo.... im gonna start in a couple hours. oh, yeah i meant to ask can anything get damaged by sitting out in the cold?

yeah i know its a triple post but whatever. its my thread. this is the power supply i bought and now i regret it because i could have gotten a thermaltake for the same price.

It isn't one of the trusted brands but I think it will be alright, unless you are planning on heavy overclocking maybe.
