    as posted in another thread ive built a new system and heres the specs:

    Asus P5N E SLI MB
    duo core 2 2.4 intel
    hitachi 250 GB sata
    evga 8800 GTS
    2GB corsair dual channel DDR2 800 mhz
    500 watt PSU

    The win XP Pro install seemed to go ok but im having some freeze up problems.

    The fan on the 8800 evga is turning but i dont feel any real exhust come out the vent at the back of the card. The card seem a little hot to the touch too. Should I feel a good blowing exhust out the back of the card? Or is it minimal and feeling hot to the touch is usual for the 8800 card?

    Well I cant really tell the Airflow of my GPU cooler either (ATi x1950xt) but I know that ATi's catalyst can tell me the temps, and they are about 45 idle and can go WAY up in game. FOr nVidia cards I would recomend downloading NvTempLogger which will log your nVidia based temps (more info at the link). I cant tell you what temps you want to have but this thing will let you know what you do have and then you can easily check nVidia's site for what is acceptable (or a quick google search).
