Re: Do I need to buy a better power supply or cool my computer more?
You need a better case. To test this, pop open the side panel.
The 80C, is that the cpu? Cause on an X4, thats a bit toasty.
Despite the generallness of your 700W psu, even the crappy ones have plenty of power for a single card. Though 2 cards may be a no go.
So nah, the psu should be just fine. I'd spend money on a case and a aftermarket heatsink. Nothiung to tricked, but a midrange model will do wonders for things.
Oh, elcome to the forum too
