Recently bought it for 110 $. I don't see how this card gets sooooo hot, reminds me of my x1600 agp card.

It idles at 58-61c 50% fan speed

When I was testing out on bioshock or crysis both at full max settings.

Jumps at arounds 85-93c i think around there. Thats prety hot, if i play like simple games like warcraft, its around 60c ish. I have a lot of air flow in my pc, and its reaaaaaalllly empty in there lot of space, only thing is my graph card, its like a train, long. By the way my MCP jumped 75c as well just from installing this card. MCP stands for what? Heard someone says its the chip set I have 6150 nvidia one. Is that what it is? Just the card makes my pc nice and toasty.

My pc is a cheap build, recently made. I never liked to overclock anything. Everything standard.

5200x2 amd 2.7
2gb gskill ram
500watt rosewill(2 year old)
250gb sata.

its a nice card, only thing I dislike about it is the TEMPS ~_~. Any simple way of cooling it besides buying new fan or heatsink for it?.
