Well, that was quick

My fanless 6800 just kicked the dust with absolutely no warning whatsoever. One moment it's showing me fileshack, the next it's a static kaliedoscope. Thankfully I had held on to my trusty Radeon 9700 Pro, which has remained one of the most steadfast computer purchases I've ever made. Heck, it's outlasted whole computers at this point.

Course, it's beyond showing it's age. I don't really know if there is a point in upgrading an AGP machine anymore these days. Probably wait for the holiday console wars before doing much of anything.

Shame though, it was a lot quieter without the Radeon's fan.
