Newegg to the Rescue!

Okay, so as those who read my last entry have seen, my video card has more or less crapped out on me. I've taken it out, and the fan has a bunch of dust on it, like it hadn't run for a while. So yeah, need to replace that. At the moment I've got my comp running off the on-board video, which is that integrated Intel crap. At least it's running...but I have to put WoW to all its lowest settings, and set the resolution to 800x600. Lame.

However, Newegg has come to my rescue. I just placed an order for an nVidia 7600GT with AGP connection. Thankfully, my machine has an AGP x8 slot. So I'll be getting that in the next day or two, to finally get up to some real gaming. Though I won't be using it for the new PC I'm building, due to not having any AGP slots on the motherboard. Oh well, the newer card will be better anyway.

In other news, I'm still playing around with character choices in WoW. I've been trying out the Hunter, which is pretty fun so far. I'm also thinking about playing a Mage. Any suggestions? Please note I'm doing Alliance only, since that's what my friends on the Realm are playing (otherwise I'd be a Blood Elf Paladin).
