Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I got a new video card a few weeks ago but I have been afraid to use it under any load. I had a EVGA Nvidia 9800GT before and it died from overheating or the nvidia curse, or whatever happened to it.
I bought a XFX Radeon HD 5770 this time and some of the temps I have been seeing it going up to scare me a little. I'm scared that it might be getting too hot and I will break this card as well. Using the Catalyst Overdrive thing it I did a benchmark test with furmark just to see what it would get at full load. I set the fan at 65%, which is a little loud, but anything to keep my card from dying. The max I got was 69c. Is that getting too hot?
