OK so my PC has been freezing lately. Thought it might have been a virus or something but I think I have found out it's my graphics card.

I currently have SC2 up and it is running over 100 degree celcius. Very hot. The fan is obviously going as fast as it can.

I have had this card for over 2 years but didn't think it should be dying this young.

I have opened my case to get cooler air but it's really only the graphics. CPU running at 70, Motherboard at 50, and HDDs at 40.

Any suggestions what I should do next?

Take apart the card and reapply the TIM

OK I've bought some (expensive!) thermal paste and will give that a go :)
