Default Pc is too hot! Slower Performance

My specs

amd athalon 64 x2 4200+
7900 gt
2 gigs of Ram
SB x-fi soundcard
300 GB Hdd

CASE: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811233002

As you can see this is a moderate to high end pc I built but the case was supposed to be very good...

As I am writing this message my GPU(card) is at a 45 Celsius. I've got 3 120 mm fans and the entire case of the fan off with a MASSIVE DESK FAN pumping air into the motherboard. I've noticed that my performance in games is faster right after I restart and it gets slower and slower the longer it stays on.

I've considered water cooling but I'd like too see your opinions!

stock cooling on the g card? Instead of anythin drastic try the zalman stuff, it really does work. My 7900 used to run around 38 idle, now it barely touches 30!

It might be a memory problem, instead of heat issues.

45C is a good temp for GPU, download everest and check fan speeds and CPU, GPU temps. Open a game play it for awhile then go to desktop open everest and check its temps.
