I only recommend coolers that I already own. The zalman VF900 and the Vf1000 are just right for this card and are silent. They are somewhat expensive but they are solid copper unlike most coolers these days which are getting to be rare. Any thing else I am just going to say good luck.

Yes but describe your problem, if it is only high temps or a broken fan then it is a easy fix but it doesn't fix a broken card like artifacts.

my problem is when i use skype and gaming at the same time it often randomly shutting down in two ways

1. the computer screen is just freezing and shows a few colors

2. it´s shutting down and automatically restart

It is worth a shot but if nothing improves then RMA your card beyond that there really isn't much that I can do to help aside from giving some advice. You can try cleaning your card or replacing the cooler.

68C is cool for a video card at load, its not over heating at all. what power supply do you have?

assuming the power supply is working fine, you have plenty of power. is the issue only when skype is in use? it could be a software issue . also make sure the 6-pin power connector is firmly attached to your ATI 5770 and all Nvidia drivers from your GT240 have been uninstalled.

Procedure to clean install a new driver:

1) Download driversweeper to your desktop, or wherever you can find it easily.
http://downloads.guru3d.com/Guru3D---Driver-Sweeper-(Setup)-download-1655.html

2) Download your new driver to the same place.
3) In add/remove programs, uninstall any Nvidia or ATI vga drivers and programs.
4) Boot into safe mode. Press F8 repeatedly while booting to enter safe mode. Your display resolution may be minimal.
5) Run driversweeper. Check the selection boxes for the removal of all nvidia vga drivers and ati drivers.
6) Rerun driversweeper. All such components should be gone.
7) Install the new driver from the desktop or saved location.

To verify that cooling is not an issue, open the side of the case, and direct a house fan at the innards. As others have said, graphics cards are built to run hot, and they do.

That sir is your problem. ATI and nVidia drivers do not mix well. After you uninstall the nVidia AND ATI drivers. Download the latest ATI drivers and install them.

And yeah, 68C is pretty damn cool for a GPU.

when i install new drivers is Catalyst Control Center also be installed?

Depends, did you download the file from ATI with CCC, then yes it will be. Well It depends as well, they also give you the option to, I would recommend it.

IF you still don't understand driversweeper. Best guide for it.

What are you trying to do exactly? Uninstall the nvidia drivers or ati drivers? Also what do you mean installing ATI Catalyst Install manger? If it were in control panel, do you mean uninstall?
September 12, 2010 11:49:39 AM

yes i mean uninstall

Well just look at the driver sweeper guide i posted, that should explain how to install new ATI drivers.
September 12, 2010 11:53:33 AM

ok thanks for the help i will test that now
September 12, 2010 12:12:04 PM

when I press f8, there is no safe mode
September 12, 2010 12:34:03 PM

ok its done, everyone thanks for the help! i hope this will work :) 
September 12, 2010 2:53:39 PM

an issue, this with me to remove all drivers for NVIDIA and ATI would remove the problem that the computer does not freeze and show a lot of colors on the screen right?
