On a different note, however, I got a new (to me) video card and power supply. I got a GeForce 6800GT 256MB, and a 420 watt PSU off of a friend at school, grand total $150. I didn't figure that was terrible, considering I haven't done anything but RAM upgrades in about 4 years. My previous card was a RADEON 8500, so it's a bit antiquated.
I can now play the Lost Coast with HDR on, and hopefully i'll be able to play anything else I can think of for a long time to come, so i'm happy about that [smile].
