Go to control panel, click display, then click the tab 'Settings'. Hit the button 'Advanced'. Then click the Tab in the new window that lists the brand of your Video Card (ex GeForce 6800 GT). In the new thing that appears on the left, select 'Temperature settings'. This will give your GPU temp at the moment, although it isn't stressed, we should be able to tell if heat is an issue by what the value is.
People here know programs to record temps during games, I don't...hopefully they will post...
