I recently got my first custom pc.
i greatly enjoy it, compared to my pos mbp.

im just wondering if my stats on the graphics card is steady/safe...
(i will post a pic of the stats when i get home.)

evga gtx 660 sc

every game (with fps/temp) i have played so far...:
the witcher 2(45-60/avg 50 degrees)
assassin's creed 3 (40-60/ avg 50 degrees)
guild wars 2 (50-60/ avg 45 degrees)

the graphics card according to evga precision, the highest temp ive seen it reach was 53 degrees C. from the research ive done, thats low... but good(?), considering from what i read they're able to handle temps at 70+.
fan speed hasnt even reached 100%, the max ive seen it is 65%.

resolution (1360 x something, will edit) isnt that decent, but i dont mind it. not a legit "monitor", samsung 24inch(?, not entirely sure) with hdmi port.

the games play incredibly well, im not complaining about it. just wondering if i researched incorrectly and that the average temperature i am getting isnt safe for the gpu..

i do not leave my pc on, after i am done gaming. i will turn it off.
current specs of pc:
rosewill blackhawk
2 x 4gb g.skillz ares
asus p8z77-v lk
intel i5 3570k (not oc, yet)
750w rosewill semi-mod psu
evga gtx 660 sc.

thank you very much.

ps. i am not using fraps, im getting all this info from evga precision.

At that low of a resolution (1360x768), your graphic card isn't stressed a lot, so you get good framerates and low temperatures.



ive tried increasing my resolution, but it looks terrible...
guess its the monitor? or could i mess with a few settings and make it look better?

also, tyvm for the fast reply.

always try to use the native resolution, it will look best that way (with settings being equal)

your card can handle most games at hd resolution
