Is the 9800 gt really broken?
Dec 26, 2010, 8:56 PM
I was looking to buy it to play LoL, minecraft, L4D2 etc. but every review seems to imply that the fan will break and it will overheat?
I just need a pci-e, that can be handled by a 500 watt power supply (Nothing else would be added, just some USB devices and surround sound headphones.
I was hoping to get a 100~ dollar gpu, doesnt matter if its nvidia/radeon/whatever...but they all seem to have some self-destructing function.
