As far as dust goes, 9 out of 10 inlet fans have filters. GPU fan had no dust on it.
So my choice is GeForce 7000 series or HD 3000? Which one? I hear ATI is crap.
That duct idea is solid, I should give it a try.

The rig is solid, I plan to keep on using it, possibly past 2012 if we survive. Like I said, because of SCSI it's pretty fast. The only thing I see myself possibly needing is Athlon 64 to run Premiere. For now I'm using vegas. Now to build a new one I'd need about a grand, which I don't have, lol. Plus there is the sadness of loosing this monster, if you know what I mean. Just think about it, I don't need nothing new, so why spend money on brand new tech which in a year will become old and cost twice less?
When they drop support for XP and Windows 7 comes out, I might build a new rig.
Now, why do you guys keep saying I need a new PSU?
