should this happen? Im playing a game on medium graphics, not TOO fancy of a game, and I see my gpu was hitting 85 degrees Celcius with 100% fan speed .. running at 99% GPU usage? ... is this normal for the card? btw the card is brand new


cpu- amd a8 5600k
gpu- nvidia geforce gt 520
memory - 6 gb (1 4gb, 1 2gb)
MOBO- biostar A55ML2
OS- Win 7

Yes, and dump it for the internal GPU of the A8 as it is far superior !

whats the exact process to do that? just remove the 520 and the APU will take over or do I have to install anything? I didnt get any discs with the apu... Also my MOBO doesnt have a DVI output so I would have to switch to VGA .. will this effect quality? And the apu only has 512 mb ram for video the 520 has 2 gig.. explain me the process of how to switch and also what will happen by switching from DVI to VGA.... and how much better will game graphics be?

Uninstall driver from Windows, shutdown, remove card, power on , install ATI driver.
