Well, Foxxie_kun well knows that I thought I had a case of overheating in: Batman: AA, Borderlands and Mass Effect 2, it was just my Sound Card's drivers that were not updated.

How bizarre that inupdated sound drivers can cause such a temperature flux on the GPU....

I am always updated when it comes to drivers.

No offense but XFX video cards sucks balls. My XFX GTX 295's two capacitor brusted last month for the same reason. Just a friendly suggestion, don't buy XFX video card next time.

I bought a Gigabyte GTX 480 and it's much cooler than my old XFX GTX 295

+1 XFX is horrible. Asus on the other hand..I've had quite a few and only 1 passed away before its time It's overpriced though.
Gigabyte is another good one although I've never had one. It offers 3years warranty and so does Asus.

i really don't know y some consider XFX bad..i've been using XFX cards for years and never had a problem with them. they have good warranty support and i've never had over-heating problems..ever. i keep my ATX dust free. collection of dust at certain key locations is also a reason for over-heating. GTS250 is a good mid-range card but please don't try running games at max settings @HG(if u r that is).
