I chuckle when people mention these "hot" temperatures. I've seen my x1950xt get to the high 90's under load, and it pretty much is always in the mid 60's at idle. Relax you 8800 owners, you are fine.

Different chips can handle diffrent temps though. I start to get artifacts at 72C with my 7900GT, and my old 9800XT saw artifacts at 77C...

ATI has said that the x1950xt officially runs safely at 100 celsius, but I don't think anyone with half a brain would want to be doing this consistently -- if at all.

I lived in California for 5 years and it was the worst 5 years of my life. Outrageous housing costs, outrageous cost of living, outrageous gas prices. I would say its the most outrageously overpriced economy of all the other states but it definately does not own every other state.

I packed up and moved to Colorado and now all the Californians are flocking here. I was really hoping to get away from that overpriced environment now it seems to be heading out here
