  1. have you check your temp?
  2. yeah man
    60-65 idle
    and whooping 80-85 load
    :O
    btw i gave it up for rma for the fourth time
    after its warranty voids in 3 months.
    ill b off for sumthin like 9800GX2 or gtx260
  3. i recommend the GTX 260... as for the Geforce 8800, wow.. 4th time your gonna RMA it? You should really give the company hell for giving you such a p.o.s gpu.

    i think 60-65 degree (idle) is quite hot for that card. maybe you should check you case airflow or simply open the side case for better airflow. btw GTX260 is a good card :)
  5. yeah lol the company gonna pull their hair as for the rma things :P

    n yeah...gtx260 seems enough for me :)))

    btw that 8600vil b here in 4 days...so lets see how far it can take me !
