Default What should I do?

ok, the graphics keep turning off on the monitor but the computer is still running. I believe it to be a problem with overheating video card because my motherboard is at 32 and my cpu is usually around 45 degrees under load. I have put my hand near the graphics cards after one of these incidents and it was really hot. I have a Sapphire ATI Radeon 9800 128mb video card and am wondering if I should just buy an upgrade or possibly really good cooling but I dont want to water cool it. Any suggestions?

those temps seem real cool to me. of course, we don't know what the video card temps are. I haven't had a component actually "feel" that hot when I open up the case to my comp.
