    Yes. I understood that. Just couldn't help adding my 2c. Need to let go of some steam.

    Funny thing too... it explains the BSODs the op experienced.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Hey guys, just an update : It seems that Sparkle no longer offers fanless 8800 cards, so I bought an ASUS GForce 8600 GTS 256MB DDR3. Running Vista x64 without any problems now.
