60 to 70c idle.....

People at Geek Squad told me the computer had good case air flowing

they said my old 4890 was a faulty card...

that card reached over 100c and I couldnt use it

now my 5770, which i used for almost a year, longer than 4890 which 4 months

also has high idle and load temps

it started when i got the card but i didn't care

its still the same now

my house is cold, not warm

I dont see any problems..

Did you overclock anything ?

Geek squad = Best Buy = Best Buy Computer = BAD BAD BAD POWER SUPPLY.

It might just get too much juice and its heating.
What is the case you are using and the powersupply ?

First off, the 4800 series runs notoriously hot. Second, what kind of air flow do you have by the video card?

I got a Dell from Best Buy and the case had decent airflow, but the video card was 1" from the bottom of the case and was only a single slot videocard. All it did was circulate hot air. It ran 108c at load.
