    Change of plans the guy i brought it off refunded me and said it was no longer available so i left him bad feed back and took it as a hit to wait for nvidia, So ill be lending a GTX 260 of a mate or ill buy a cheap card to use for the time being.

    some people online are saying that the squealing is only caused when you have 100's of fps... i get that with every card... so this could hopefully just be that...

    if any component squeals its normally from a high current going though a capacitor, most old computers like P4s have this sound its normally indicates age and there on there way out which isn't a good thing for a new card.
