Just install the card and use defaults if you don't know why they need changeing them.No wonder you might have problems.
They won't overheat if you leave well enough alone.
9800 pro is all you should need,the way it comes.
Good Luck.

By the way,where do i get a video card thermometer ?

I'd imagine, with a 9800 Pro that there is something working in the background sucking up the general speed. Its not going to be an overheating problem.

Download something like Adaware and check your system.

You're so funny Bluto!

That gets 1 item out of the way then.It's not a virus or Internet related.
Does the Video card specs meet the games "recommended"
not minimum specs.
If so contact 1 or both.These might be lemons or bad but guaranteed .
asus supplys me with my thermometer.Running just fine at 95 f.
