    i have the original macbook (2 ghz black 80 GB, 1 GB memory). so whenever i do something even as strenuous as playing an online game (addicting games, teagames, etc.) my fan starts going crazy at like 5000 rpm and it is really loud. so thats not good during class. why is it always acting up like this?

    It sounds like a Flash game. You're going to hammer your CPU if it is.

    Flash is poorly written for OS X.

    ya my computer goes crazy within like 2 minutes. also, i have an n64 emulator and it works up for that. is it just because its tough to do and all the graphics (kinda)?

    Its because Flash is very unoptimized to run in OS X, thus needing much more processing power, which heats up the computer and it needs to cool down, making the fan run faster and noisier.
