My brother got a pc last year for christmas, but it used onboard graphics, so i put in a video card for him. The problem is, the video card is right above a tv tuner, and it greatly increases the temperature of the video card (ive seen it as high as 85 C). So, im thinking of moving the tv tuner down to the pci express x1 slot under the one its in now, but im just wondering if this would cause driver/performance issues for the tv tuner. Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.
One time when I had to move a video card from one PCI slot to another (it was a PIII 933) I had to reinstall the drivers. That was all that happened. As for a TV tuner, I would think it would just do a couple of things behind in the background but that should be it.
