Hi Mark.

Thanks for the reply.

I've got a workaround for the moment - a 10s pause!

I was using a 54MB/s wireless network that's part of my network topology.

I'm looking at dabs right now.

I'm a big NVidia fan and have been for many years. The intel chipset is 
on the mobo of the silent pc so I thougt it was worth giving it a try.

Ah, problem. I don't have PCIe, only PCI. I can get one for around 40 
which is this:

http://www.dabs.com/products/pny-geforce-8400gs-576mhz-512mb-pci-vga-dvi-i-5K9L.html?refs=41600000

But I have no idea if its fanless, otherwise I've sort of defeated the 
object. Misco do it as well, and at least they allow product questions, 
but I'll have to wait until Mondat to give them a call.

It's AGP - again no good.

Thanks for the help Mark
