Hi right now I'm running on a gtx 660 ti with the i5 3570k. Atm I'm using a 27' LG tv and my gpu is getting up to 60°C at a 1360x768 resolution. If I upgrade to a monitor with a 1920x1080 resolution will the temps increase??

Maybe, as you'll play on 1080p. It will put more load on GPU and hence increase heat.

That temp is while Gaming. Right?
That temp looks more than it should.

very likely.

the higher the resolution, the more data your card has to push around. Generally resulting in more heat.

If your getting 60C only during gaming, dont worry about it, all that will happen is your GPU fan gets noisier. - If its IDLEING at 60C you have other problems.

Oh alright then. Yeah it idles at about 30. What would you say the max gpu temp should be before I should start to worry

When it is around 80. Then its a little Dangerous.

Your temps look nice

GPU's can take the heat. No need to worry unless you start measuring temps close to 100C.

Well, if it's different for Nvidia cards than it is AMD cards then I'm not aware. And of course my 6970 might like to run hotter than other cards. It barely uses the fan until I hit like mid 70's.

Don't you think your PC will start to burn at those temps?
80 is enough.

My old Card (9400GT) used to get around 95. Sure to mention that I overclocked the GPU way too much :lol:

I agree that it's pretty hot, but my card is a reference design so all that heat is just exhausted out of the case. And it takes a few hours straight for my card to reach the high 80's but I swear it could stay there all day and like it. As far as the GPU is concerned, I think the 80's are like room temperature. They've always been heat tanks. If you could hit the 80's in a matter of minutes then yea I think there's a problem.

most cards are geared to withstand up to 105c
my mates 6990 sits at about 98c all the damn time at 100% load and has been
running since march/april 2011 (this PC dosnt even get shut down apart from updates) without a single issue.
