118F is about 48C which is not too hot, it shouldnt shut down your computer. But, how do you know this is the actual temp of the graphics card. You mention you have a temp reading on the front of your computer, do you know exactly what it is measuring? Because if speedfan says your CPU is 40C, this is much lower than 48C (118F). Just trying to figure out where that 118F is coming from.
A 2.8G CPU should not be overheating on Civ. When you mention your graphics card is custom made, what do you mean?
no i meant my computer is customly made, i put the temperature reading inbetween the fan(heatsync) and the the card itself, like where the fan is, so the reading can be a bit lower. i can pretty much stick the thermometer almost anywhere in the computer to get a reading of a temperature.
the FPS doesn't drop in the beginning of the game in civ but towards the end where alot of buildings and land are covered then it starts, also i ran a demo of BF2 and the lag was pretty big.
