Ever since I changed the fan on my video card my computer runs slower. At first, I was getting even hotter readings on my video card than with my old card. Now, I leave the computer next to an open window and get reasonable temperatures, but my computer still runs slower. This all happened after I replaced the fan. Anyone know why?

the fan may not be rated for that video card. what kind of video card do you have? what kind of fan did you buy? is it copper? copper fans are way better because they are more conductive. did you use the thermal grease when you installed the fan?

I had a proffessional install the fan and yes he did use thermal grease. I know my card is compatible with my card, I checked the list. Here is the fan: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16835118001 , I have 6800 GT

Also, I just become aware that one of the fans on my power supply broke. Is it possible that it could have damaged the other hardware even though its still functional, I'm using it right now.

do u have another video card? try it out. if it works fine then there is something wrong with ur original video card. a broken fan in a power supply is not good. that could also be the source of your problem. i had a similar problem. my cpu over heated and my pc ran unbelievably slow. i then upgraded to a better heatsink/fan unit and it was back.
