Completely new to cooling. Need some help

I'm thinking of upgrading my 6970 to a 7970Ghz, and I've been told/read that I'm going to need some kind of cooling system to accompany it, but I have no idea what to do.

  1. It's more about whether or not your case has enough air flow to keep the 7970 cool. The 7000 gpus consume less wattage than the 6000 gpus so if your 6970 is not over heating the 7970 should be ok.
  2. How do I find out if it's overheating?
  3. Lots of videos on youtube. Just search checking gpu temps.
  4. Okay, I shall do so. Thanks!
