This is the temps of my computer (the green line up there is the gpu) after about five minutes of crysis at medium settings no aa res: 1024x768 , i have a nVidia GEforce gt220 and i noticed that it has no fan at all, first when i bought the computer i didn´t understand any of this, but im starting to get a hang of it now. my specs are: 4 CPUs at 2.3 GHz, 6144Mb RAM and windows 7 64 bit

at first i could play lots of games without any problems, nowdays i can play for a while and the screen goes black and there are some wierd noises, also before this problem appeared sometimes the screen went black for some seconds and then the computer said something about the graphics driver or card got shut down and restarted, but then i wasnt even playing anything..

so i was wondering how to solve my problem, i was thinking about buying a new graphics card, a radeon 5770, do you think this will solve my problems? Or do you have any better ideas for me?and also do you think i will have any problems with the power supply if i just stick in a radeon 5770?

i had same error message about my video card stopping and restarting ,it never had win7 drivers for the card so iu removed it and just use my onboard video ,im not a gamer so i reall don't know if your card is good enough to play said games .but my suggestion would be to make sure that you are using latest drivers from nvida website for you card .

oh, youre right, it seems like its upside-down in my comp, if thats possible? i wondered why the hdmi cable had to be that way a while ago :D
and yes i am sure i have the latest driver for it, updated the day before yesterday :/

checked the fan, its spinning, then it must be a faulty card?

If you don't feel like buying a new card go to newegg.com and search for "PCI Slot Case Cooler" these could help cool your video card.
