For now I have been carrying its pre-stuffed compression bag inside but that cuts the capacity down to about 25-30L and for longer trips is beginning to become insufficient.

Results have been mixed. Mostly because I now get ATI-specific crashes instead of Nvidia ones...You used to be able to hear the old GTS250 spin up when it went into 3D mode, but ...
