it got up to 60c playing farcry. 1 quick question. is it better to play a game with all the quality settings maxed at a low resolution or play at a high resolution with it all turned down or somewhere in between? also please state the advantages of each if possible.

well the resolution would just make it crisper, but if you've got the graphics turned down to crap there's really nothing to crisp ya know?

Best bet would just to max out the graphics and lower the res.

wonder if there is anyway to mod a 92mm or even a 120mm fan under the graphics card? i mean atm i only have my audigy which is in my very bottom pci slot leaving nice nice space to fit one on. even if it running slowly sumthing is better than nothing when it comes to my fanless heatsink on it. how loud are artic coolers? cos was looking to get one to replace on my my card, well wen a 6600gt version comes out

sorry dude. i havent tried farcry with the 71.25 drivers yet. i havent got the game. from what i ahve heard the 71.25 drivers make yellow water in half life2. havent seen it either cause i dont have the game. if you do some research on the nvidia forums maybe you can see some personal experinces.
