Put the money asside for an emergency. Sometimes you make stupid mistakes and ruin your hardware like, me jsut ruined my CPU. Keep it for just such an occasion.

with $50 you can get both the VF900 (non-LED) and the VC-RE at jab-tech.com. although you might want to think about saving another $50 and getting a Soundblaster X-Fi or something like that.

Yep, I'd agree that if you had to spend it, buy the Zalman VF900. It's hot in my room right now but my X1900XT is sitting at 41C as we speak.

I bought the VF700 Alcu (the low end one)

and evercool twinkler ...

Seems fairly good. 9C on the vid card should make a nice difference, and it probably helps keep the chipst down some as well.
