Firefox 3 Flaw
 
After less than a day of being out hackers have found a huge flaw in the said to be 'secure' browser.
 
According to the Security outfit, Digital Vaccine Laboratories, it is the first critical hole found in the browser, but to be fair it can be found in version 2.0.x. The flaw is to do with the way FireFox implements JavaScript and by filling a page with malicious JavaScript code could easily bring the browser down. The vulnerability has been forwarded to the Mozilla security team .
 
Not to fear because the exploit is self inflicted by clicking on certain webpages or email links.
 
Discuss the FireFox flaw on our Forums.

Nice little setup there, need some watercooling for that overclocking, mind you, i have the water bug, cant stop watercooling things now. XD

Anyways, I wouldnt bother upgrading as of yet, that card will be fine for most applications, if you do upgrade, go for a larger monitor too, Take advantage of the power.
