Hmm, that's a good point. I think in severe cases it's usually visible with
the screen powered off, so I suppose I can tell if it's really bad. Or I
might just haul my 5160 in and try it out at the store :-)

Book store guy also buys electronics scrap by the pound, so I'll see how
many junk modern PC motherboards I can rustle up to help offset the cost...
