So its 2013 and my gpu is slowing down a bit and getting warm (95C) under load and 70c at idle with fans at 50% so its kinda noisy. im planning on moving my dell xps 8300 to a large case ($150 max) and getting a new motherboard ($150 max) that is crossfire compatible then buying a second 5770 ($50). the dell has a 460w psu currently. should i go through with my plans or just get a $250 graphics card and sell the old one on ebay. i would eventually like to get to a full size case with some water cooling and basically a custom rig so that is also playing a role in my decision.
also the current rig is so loud at 50% speed on the gpu fan. the other fans are silent.
intel i7 2600 3.4 ghz
32"led tv as monitor and 19" dell as 2nd
amd radeon5770 1gb
460w psu stock dell

you may as well just get a entirely new system based around a 2600. crossfire 5770s are weak sauce and a waste of time anyways.

what is a 2600
the 5770 runs most of my games on highest settings.
i just gave it a thorough cleaning and its idling at around 50c and during a game of lol at max it didnt get above 63

your i7 2600.

the idle temps are still rather high. try clearing the cabling around the GPU and try to direct some airflow onto it

do not use 40mm fans. they are a total pain in the ears and do jack crap in terms of total airflow. GPUs should be idling at around 30 or so degrees. your load temps seem fine however
