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 :)
