    I've been hearing about an overheating problem with the ATI® MobilityTM RadeonTM 9600 Pro Turbo. I'm ordering the 8600 and looking to put this card in when they build it but I'm a little unsure about this overhaeting issue. I'm getting the Pent 4M at 1.5 Ghz. There's a fix for the issue (http://www.bay-wolf.com/8500video.htm) but I'm not keen on fixing what I just bought.

    It doesnt overheat to the point of damaging the card or crashing the computer, it's just hot, and limits overclocking potential.

    * Inspiron 8600c * 1.8ghz Pentium M * 128 MB Radeon 9600 Pro Turbo * 2x512 MB DDR2700 SDRAM * 60GB 7200RPM HDD *
