Default ATI Radeon X700 PRO 256MB overheat?

i'm kind of new to this, but do you recommend turning off your computer to let it cool down once in a while? because i'm the type to leave my computer on forever. Unless I have to restart or something. I'm just worried about my new vid card overheating or something.

No u don't need to turn it off. Though I'd say that it would do good to ur electrical bill to turn it off sometimes
But overheating just because it is on is not going to happen. Unless u are running some bechmarks 24/7.

Yeah, it's not like you're having BF2 running the whole time your computer is on. I'm the same way, only time it gets shut down is when I have to restart..
