I recently got a Radeon 9250 128MB AGP 8X video card and I'm running a 864MHZ PIII 384MB RAM (I know it's not anything special. But that's all I have right now).
The thing is, whenever I play 3D-intenstive games (which I've been doing a lot of because I have been unable to with my old 32MB TNT2), such as Command & Conquer Generals, after about a half-hour, I begin to smell burning electronics... :|
However, it has been hotter than normal lately and all of my fans come on (I can hear it) to add to everything. My card does have a heatsink but as I said, I still smell stuff. Basically what I've been doing is as soon as I smell it, shut off my PC for an hour or so. It's fine when I'm just using my browser, watching videos, or playing Starcraft.
Do you think this is just me being paranoid, the new card being "broken in," or could this be a serious issue I need to address? Thanks.
