My 9600 OCX runs pretty hot (60C idle, 80++ on load) and i was wondering if it would be worth getting the BFG gts 250 oc (512mb) Also are they both about the same size? Im a few milimeters away from my toucing my wireless card D:.
Yep always, although i do remember it being about 50-60 on IDLE now its never below 60. Cleaned case out yesterday, nothing has changed. Also my 19" widescreen is a bit fuzy (maybe its cause im use to a 17" fullscreen?) and i was thinking of getting a HDMI cable would that change nething?
80+ really isn't terribly hot, especially if it's on auto fan. If the card has a 4-wire fan and not running full RPM, you should be able to manually increase the fan speed through software. I understand wanting to keep it a lower temp, but if that's the only issue...it's not a bad one.
As far as the "fuzzy" screen, are you running the LCD at it's native resolution?
