    Exclamation How hot Should my GPU be?

    Well i just bought a pc, and it has a Nvidia 8600gt, Which has Directx 10 and shit but i was wondering how hot should it be,i used speedfan to check it and during some good play on crysis its gets to around 70

    Is the Fan speed on full? If not try and change that. That is kind of hot for that card my card runs at 47 on full load and 29 min.

    You're just wasting your money, you would be far better off upgrading that seriously outdated cpu and gpu than switching fans and getting fancy (crappy) cases

    Mine is usually 37 to 40 degrees.
    I'm pretty sure it should be under 50 to be at high performance.

    I'm pretty sure it shouldn't. Trust me, I'm prolly running more Nvidia GPUs at this moment than you have your entire life.

    LOL I have a aftermarket cooler and I still run close to 50..... anything over 80 is bad for the card.

    Actually the cards shouldn't have problems until they go over 90/100-ish

    Nothing to worry about, that's well within the safe range
