Hey Folks,

So I have a Nvidida Geforce GTX 480 in my custom built computer. It runs fantastically as does everything else, but the card is having some heat issues. When I am gaming it is usually running at 60c. First, is that anything to worry about? And if so, what is a good way to inexpensively keep that cooler. Everything else runs at a good temp.

Also, nothing is over clocked. So in short, what is a good way to cool my graphics card that isn't too expensive.

Thanks guys!

60C is perfectly normal for a video card at load.

Alot of graphics cards come overclocked out of the box. Running an intense game is like running Prime95 on the CPU.
