Default GPU Core Temp

So I bought a nVidia GeForce 8800 GT about a month ago, and never check any temperatures until tonight. I had been playing Warhammer Online for about 3 and a half hours, and I brought it up and saw my GPU Core was running at a max temp of 77C.

I'm guessing that is too hot right? I also just began using dual monitors. I believe my case is pretty crappy too. Anywho, should I use a fan fix of some sort to get it going faster? and if so, how would I got about doing that? Thanks! :]

Default Re: GPU Core Temp

video cards are different from cpu's, they are made to run very hot, as long as u have ur card registerd i wouldnt worry about temps at all. but if u dont like ur temp u can always change ur fan speed with rivia tuner or evga precision
