Is it not just that its stealing a bit for the Graphics?

I have had a mobo die on me, but it was my fault, I'd been using a 300W PSU
on a dual-core system (too lazy to go buy a new one)... didnt stop me
claiming a new one off the warrenty though ;]... though I did get round to
getting a 600w PSU =D

Oh, and theres something up with a board I happen to have by me, somethings
overheating, (checked out RAM, PSU and CPU, and its not them) but since its
a 800mhz system, I couldnt care less lol
