Wow, sounds like my weedeater! More then likely is the fan. Take the card out and blow it out with some compressed air.

already done that , in fact the whole inside of my pc has had a good blowjob :ouch: 
all other fans are working fine, is it just past its sell by date ? and i need a new card?

Yeah sounds like the fan might be on the way out. You might be able to find a cheaper aftermarket cooling solution but then again this may be a good excuse for an upgrade ;)

ok, think ill get a new card, im not into gaming alot so spending £70-80 on one should do the job. (preferably one with a good quiet fan, :lol:
