actually the xt i was considering has 256 mb:

Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100186L Radeon X1950XT 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 VIVO HDCP Video Card - Retail

but the 512 mb is 240$

The 512 is not worth the money. might as well get an 8800GTS 320 for that much.

70 is not hot for a GPU

Anything under 80's on average is where you want to be for a GPU however low 80's is ok too as long as the card isn't throttling. The G80 has been known to run in the high 80's.

wow.. never knew that... thanks... but is the 80 degrees under load or not? also the 512 mb xt has a rebate dropping it to 209$ probably still not worth it... but good to know, whicch are u getting Sora?

I think that's ok for the 8 series card. As long as it doesn't hit the 90s, under load.
