    Hey all,

    A simple question to you in this hard times xD
    So today i've experienced "Video card has stopped working bla bla" in a game, happened every few minutes, game froze for ~5sec then back to normal.
    Searched on the internet and turned out there could be tons of different reasons.

    So i tried to open up my pc and checked if everything's ok, all fans were working and stuff was fine.
    Then i dled GPU temp check and saw that in Idle my Temp is ~70C, is it too much or is it normal?
    Doesn't really feel like GPU is overheating, runs like usually, just that GPU fan making a little less noise now i think Oo.

    My specs:
    CPU Dual core 3.16
    GPU Ati HD4870
    PSU 550W

    1. Should i change the fan on GPU or is it pretty much fine as it is now? ( I'm planning to change whole system in about 4-6months anyway )
    2. Is it easy to change GPU Fan on ur own?
