Looking for some opinions... I have an old radeon 4850 card, one of the early ones before they started using dual slot coolers. It runs stupidly hot, its idling at 64 cel. as we speak, and its not a hot day. Playing the mass effect 2 demo, it was getting up to over 100 cel. I'm wondering whether I should just pick up an aftermarket video card cooler, or if it would make more sense just to upgrade to a new video card? Money is (relatively) tight for a new card, so if I was to upgrade, I couldn't go for the highest end... any opinions would be greatly appreciated.
You have good system, the Q6600 is still good and you can o/c it
Thanks, I really appreciate that. I wasn't aware the Q6600 was still viable, I just assumed it was comically outdated by now. I have a pretty good cooler on the q6600, but I'm (ashamed to admit) not sure how to check what kind of temps its running at?
