As you might have already noticed, we've put up a new poll. This week, we're wondering about how much memory is on your main graphics card. Are you one of those folks who still run old TNT2s, GeForces, or integrated graphics with memory in the double digits, or are you the lucky owner of a state-of-the-art DirectX 10 graphics card with more than half a gig of RAM? Head over to our poll and vote if you'd like to let us know.
Last week's poll subject was, "What's the noisiest component in your PC?" Just over 2400 people participated, and it looks like the noisiest component in people's PCs overall is the graphics cooler. That part had 26% of votes, compared to 23% for the processor cooler, 15% for the power supply, 13% for the hard drive, and a surprising 5% for the chipset fan—a component often known for loud, whiny demises. It also looks like 6% of voters keep a hamster wheel in their PCs. Perhaps that's not a bad way to cut your carbon footprint if you want to power those dual Radeon HD 2900 XTs.
