That's a handy list and I have seen it before but the guy has got it wrong here.

# Radeon X1900 XTX
# GF 7900 GTX

The X1900XTX is slightly faster than the 7900GTX.

I downloaded speedfan to my old Dell Pent II and got a temperature reading of 4 celsius (40 degrees)

This thread was showing 13 replies so had to make it 14 as 13 is just unlucky. \:\)

Here's another free firewall. You get full version for 30days then it downgrades to free version if you don't buy it.

This one is more than just a firewall, it's more like a net nanny with firewall.

This one is free but can be a bit daunting to set up.
