Dimension 8200 AGP gfx

What do you think the best option is for an old dimension 8200 gfx card without investing much money...

I have an Asus GeForce 8600 GTS (1GB) that the fan stopped working on and overheated/shutdown several times before I figured out the problem.

I have a Jaton Radeon HD3450 (512MB) in it currently.

Would it be worth trying to find an alternate fan/cooler for the GeForce 8600 (4 or 5 tiers better than the 3450)? Or once its overheated multiple times is it going to continue to be problematic anyway?

oh...AGP only.

  1. Seriously.
    just because we're here, doesn't mean to not do any research on your own first.


    This one can run modern games, but don't expect Ultra settings
  2. Niice. Assuming I can't look up AGP cards. ok, well. reread the post. Maybe I shoudl clarify, not much money means, the cost of a new cooler fan.

    I spent the money on a 49$ HD3450. to get by....so the budget is much less than that.

    Not going to drop 112$ into a 11yr old box.
  3. Would be nice to get advice without attitude.
