Should I buy a new VGA fan for my BFG Geforce 7900gtx?
I was reading through a lot of different posts and people have been complaining that the 7900 series of geforce cards are extrememely hot. I just recently bought a BGF 7900gtx and was wondering if the stock cooler is sufficient enough to cool it. If not, what suggestions do you have for a replacement vga fan?
no....its best to keep it below 45 at idle, and not higher than 60 at full load, depending on the case you have, you just probably need better airflow....so get another exhaust fan or something.....i think that should help.

GPU's run MUCH hotter than CPUs. They can handle much higher heat loads. My 7800GT gets to nearly 80C under load and its perfectly fine. If you want to reduce the life of your video card, then you would do a volt mod.
