    I've had my video card for about 2 years, a 7800gt. the fan on the heatsink makes a nasty grinding noise. the card's temperature seems to be fine. i'm not sure if it's worth getting a new heatsink and fan for my vid card or to just get a new one.

    With newer and better cards out now I would just upgrade the card. You might take a look at a brand like Evga which sometimes offers a lifetime warranty for their cards.
