  1. Your processor temp is fine.

    Can't say on the GTS 8800. I know the older Nvidia cards were hot running. There were two chips used on that card. The early ones had the G80. The later had the G92. The G80's were hot running.
  2. Okay thanks for the confirmation on the processor and on the graphics card, do you know anything about the motherboard?
  3. I have no idea what Asus boards those models use.
  4. Okay, thanks for your help!
  5. I had an 8800 GT which ran in the 80's under full load. Even though I think it used the G92 chip, the 70's and 80's were pretty common for chips back then.
  6. Just out of curiosity, which 8800 GTS do you have? 320 MB or 640 MB?

    320 :)

    If you are planning on gaming @ 1680x1050 or above with that rig, your next purchase will most likely be a new graphics card. The old 320MB 8800GTS is going to cripple that nice new i5 when it comes to gaming. For general purpose computer use though, it's fine.
  8. Ya, I plan on buying a new graphics card, would you suggest Nvidia or ATI?
  9. Unless you are planning on buying a top of the line model, I suggest which ever card you can get at the best price. In a mid-upper range single card system, they are extremely competitive. For the time being AMD holds the lead at the very top ($900). The rest of the hierarchy is a tossup. And a lot depends on the resolution of your display.,2997-7.html
  10. Ya, I'm hoping on buying a new monitor, as mine is only a small one that is a few years old, then buying a graphics card.
