Need advice on a cooler temp gaming vidcard Tags: Graphics Cards Gaming Cooling Cases Graphics stayghost February 24, 2010 7:59:44 PM I'm stuck in a Dell mid-size case with poor ventilation. Using a shintzy ATI 4850 that has degenerated and is running extremely hot idle and onload, even with case panel off. I'm looking for recommendations on a new vid card that will run relatively cooler and still do well for gaming. (Dragon Age, Mass Effect 2, misc. MMORPGs ) My specs: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4ghz 3GB Ram 650w PSU Windows Vista PCIe Slot 1440x900 resolution Budget: upto $250 any help would be greatly appreciated!
