I installed a new Evga GTX260 core 216 video card into my E8400 based workstation. The video card generates a considerable amount of heat. This caused a hard drive in the E8400 workstation to get close to it’s temperature limits. I moved the card to the QX9650 workstation instead later in the evening. The QX9650 based system has much more efficient air flow and cooling. I am quite pleased with the increase in performance so far. At 1650×1080 I am able to increase the details to their maximum in my favorite online game. I increased the system RAM from 2G to 4G as well. The two upgrades caused Windows Vista to require re-activation yet again. I tried the online method. That failed. I used the phone upgrade method and that succeeded.
