Grats on the new GPU.

Call your hardware vendor for support
***The system has halted***

why do people insist on calling the graphics card a GPU? that would be like calling the motherboard a processor.
I was trying to dereference Null Pointers before it was cool.

I think it's fair to call the graphics card the GPU in the [email protected] section since really that's what's being used really to fold. However, that being said I think you've still got a valid argument. :)
