    Well i just recently updated my computer..new case,proccessor,motherboard,graphics card,power supply and added a few fans . CompUsa installed everything for me i brought it home played my Aion closed beta.. everything was ok GPU was at 48 to 52.The next week i was playing aion with my wife my monitor shut off...seems the GPU was overheating..even just at the load up screen for aion it was at 68 i havnt even logged into game yet.

    I took the computer to COMPUSA 4 times each time they said "oh it should be flawless now" still overheating..spent alot of money >< anyone have any ideas...besides returning the graphics card cause i wanna see if its somthing simple and easy to fix before i do that.:confused:

    If the temp readings are correct and heat singk fan is running contsant i would say [guessing] that its a air flow problem. You could as a test leave the side off of the case and with a small house fan blowing air into the case as a test. Do you over clock?
