I have Sapphire 9600XT. Does anyone know if fans on video cards are replaceable or serviceable? I will buy a new video card if I have to, but I really would prefer not to. Thanks.

You can replace a fan no problem.

For service, cleaning it from dust regularly is the best way to keep it running better and longer.

get the zalman silent cooler, (just watch the squeezing of the heatsink plates to avoid wrecking the vidio card) , or the vf700 (vf 900 won't work)

Really, you should ditch it, and get a directx 9 sm 3.0 card i.e the x1600 series or higher...

or if you are using agp... The nvidia 7800gs agp card would be faster and allow to play the new games...

or just get a new computer with PCI-express slots...
