    So this is the new one with the SLI'ed 8800 GTX's you say you got? It seems that thing is giving you nothing but problems, I'll save you the grief, just mail that bad boy to me and I'll find good use for it

    the question is whether it is the gtx or something else.

    Ok, lets get down to bidness and figger sumtin out.

    You say the fans are cycling, which fans? The PS fan, the CPU fan, or the video fans? I'll bet the video fans arent it as they are pretty quiet to begin with on the 8800's. So that leaves the cpu and the ps. What sort of power supply do you have, and what cooler do you have on the cpu?

    Next, ctrl alt del so the task manager is up, click on processes and see what the cpu usage is...and then click the cpu header to see what process is on the top using up all the clock cycles to see what is loading down your machine. Oh yeah, all this is if the cpu usage is more than a couple %'s, i.e. loading your system.

    Oh wait, you jumped the gun on that box and got Vista...Bwahahahaha! I dont know much about Vista or if any of these troubleshooting processes are valid with that, so I guess you should just mail me that machine as it is giving you so much grief.

    More than likely its the case fan. They go haywire pretty frequently, and need replaced. We had one guy at work that pretty much replaced case fans as a fulltime job.

    da, if it overheats, you can just take off the case until you get the new fan, if one is needed.

    Is it making any noises? There are two or three other fans in your system, but the only one I've ever had problems with is the case fan.

    Comes from too much posting and polling. You wore out your PC.

    its the fan near the on and off switch...case fan. the only noise is it spinning super fast then slowing down, then speeding up again...etc.
    no, i havent install vista yet. i'm still XP.
    I think the power supply is 700. gtx requires it.
