Default Will video card overheat?

If i run AA and everything on High settings on resolution 1152 x 864. The video card wont overheat if i play games for couple of hours right? Usually i run games in 1024 without the AA and its medium settings but since i have a high end card x1600pro i wanna run high settings. Its not overclock so its should be ok right?

I also have 2 120mm fans and a 80mm on the side panel so the cooling is great.

it depends on the cooler.
I'd say the X1600's cooler is sufficient for it not to overheat

it also depends on the case.... If you purchase a low quality case with less than stellar fans, you could have a big problem, and see the ambient case temps skyrocket.... Airflow is key. Many people overlook the simplest part of PC building... looking quality parts & having good airflow.

With the cooling setup you mentioned in your first post though, your rig should be able to handle the load with no trouble. Good luck, let us know how it goes.

Your setup should be fine as not only does the card have its stock cooling but your additional fans as well to keep it cool.
