What type of case cooling do you have?

And of course it makes your room hot. If you didn't want that, you should've gone with an atom build. Seriously, my rig with just a 5750 was enough to heat up a room.

well apparently i didnt know what i was getting in to.

this sucks. lol.

i also wish ATI would come out with cool games for their card. like nvidia has that rocket chair game and design garage.

i suppose i could try to buy a physx card and run the patch so i can use both cards. but i almost dont feel like dealing with that nightmare.

Same. I find myself using my E5200/GTS250 build more then my Q9400(3.2ghz)/HD5770 build, because it heats my room up so much and my E5200 build is still more then capable :P

It was absolutely terrible when I was using the GTS250 as a PhysX card though. Especially since it made the PSU heat up as well, and I had my CPU clocked to 3.6ghz O_o
