I have ATI 4850, this graphic card is killing me ! the idle temperature is always about 87 degrees ! sometimes in middle of the games the system hangs, restart, or even shut down automatically !
I think its vga problem, i want to change it with nvidia, please advice me to buy something new, but not very high end, something midrange and not expensive, same power as 4850 or better.
my cpu is q6600 and i have 4gb ram
thnx

What is your PSU? brand? model?
Are you sure the card+case are free from dust? Tried applied a new thermal paste?
