Noisy PC...

Well I finally turned off my old PC to see how quiet the new one is by itself... Not impressed. :-/ There's this very tuned hum coming from something and it's piercing right through the case and probably through walls too. So I went around holding fans still one by one until I found the culprit: the video card. When that fan is held silent, the PC is half as quiet, and all that remains is a nice white noise from the 4 remaining fans and hard drive. The video card is an eVGA Geforce 6600GT.

I'm also trying to figure out what to do about e-mail. Per my last post, I'm really loathing POPFile right now, so I won't be installing it on the new system. That means I can't use Eudora because it has no built-in spam blocking. So what then... Thunderbird? Outlook Express? I've been trying to find a decent mail program for years. Now I need to make a decision pretty quick.
