I think the reason it runs real hot is because it has no fan.

I would go with one that has a fan.

For $3 more, you should get the XFX GeForce 8600GT. It won't have the overheating issues as the Gigabyte one, and it will perform better due to it's higher clock speeds.

Get the 8600GTS, it's a much better buy than the 8600GT

^^My thinking as well. it seemed to be kinda universal between companies to only have like a $10 differance between the two.

$10 difference? LOL!

It's more like $50 between the XFX 8600GT and 8600GTS.

For those on a budget, $50 is quite a bit more then "a few dollars" when a lower priced card will perform nicely.
