    Speedfan is a fine app and I use it however it sometimes gives flaky readings. Check your temps in the bios and post the result.

    As you can see from your pic, you have a dual core and speedfan says core1 is @1.17V and core2 is @3.31V not believable.

    Ok i'll get back to you, as my PC kept crashing and i was interested as to why. It wasn't as much as it was crashing when running full screen applications such as WoW. It would crash after opening a Firefox window ect.

    I've just got to pop to the shops, i'll be back in an hour and i'll do a reading.

    thanks alot.

    Those temps are fine.

    If you have a high end video card like an 8800 series or 3xxx series, you might want to check its temp also. This is usually displayed in the driver properties.

    I have an 8400, Also is it the graphics card that causes a low FPS in a game?

    Yes, that is not a gaming card. It is for general apps, email, web, etc. If you want to play games ie UT3, Crysis, etc you are going to need something like an ati 1950/3850 OR an nvidia 8800 series.

    I'm wishing to play World of Warcraft at a better frame rate, when i go in certain areas i get a low frame rate of about 10 FPS and on average i get around 40.. Do you have any recommendations? I don't want to spend lots on a card i may not use to full potential.

    You did not post if you need pci-e or agp. This card is pci-e and is not too bad after the rebate it is $139 or so.

    One other thing to consider. When you use a higher powered video card, you often have to upgrade the pw supply. If you have a pre-built system ie dell, hp, etc, they almost always come with a pw supply that is just enough for the system as shipped. There is no room for upgrades.
