Hrmmm....  The only thing I can think of are some RH7.2 packages that I 
installed through Red Carpet the other night.

GeForce 2, I believe.  I'll check on X when I get home, but I believe it's 
a pretty recent version.

I don't think that's an issue... my brother-in-law actually built the 
computer for me (he and my wife worked on it together -- it was my wife's 
wedding present to me), and he's not a big fan of overclocking, as far as I 
know.  But I'll ask him.
