Hi, I'm really new to buying computers, and I bought one, put my 8800GTS video card in and now I'm just wondering what temperatures are good for these parts in the computer, and some suggestions to keep it nice.

CPU: Intel i5 2310 2.9GHz

Graphics Card: Nvidia 8800GTS -

Motherboard - ASUSTeK Computer INC. - CM6630_CM6730_CM6830

Okay thanks for the confirmation on the processor and on the graphics card, do you know anything about the motherboard?

I have no idea what Asus boards those models use.

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.

Just out of curiosity, which 8800 GTS do you have? 320 MB or 640 MB?

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.

Ya, I plan on buying a new graphics card, would you suggest Nvidia or ATI?

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.

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.
