Hey, just wanted to add a question again.

I've bought the BFG 9800GT OC+ 1GB card but Im just wondering...

This card is overclocked, so do I need to do anything extra to make it last longer and keep it cool? I'm being told by quite a few people that It will breakdown sooner than most cards and probably have overheating problems

I have a new case with 5 fan slots, so surely the cooling is no problem?

Well you may want to look at the temps, they should be perfectly fine thought because it was factory oced, set the fan to auto adjust to rising temps. That should keep it reasonable. But it is not a hot card, you only really need to worry about really high temps with the new high end cards. Also a factory oc is not going to shorten the life of the card or anything like that.
