I know it looks lame but there was a lot more to the motherboard specs than 
just that video requirement. getting a dual opteron unit socket F with a

now and 2025 in a bid to keep the lights on in the province. If history is 
any indicator, the nuke plans will be characterized by inefficiencies, 
unanticipated delays,and massive cost overruns, but will at least ensure the 
certainty that future generations have access to a secure supply of 
radioactive waste.
