Ok this is the story I have a 6600 GT, well I am also broke atm (spent my money on a case) so anyways today I came home played 2 hours of CS:S, and 1 hour of madden (all maxed out settings besides AA etc blah blah) Well the game was running really fine, not a issue at all. Then I exit out of the game and I got this fuzzy ass screen.
It looks at if its like 4 bit graphics you know really crappy and I looked at my GPU temps and I just remembered going "O_O", so I gave my PC a quick cool down turned it off for a well.
I booted it up fine, but thing is I am getting a new GPU this x-mas 7900 GTO 512 MB
(mind change mind pending release of G8) now this card has to last me until at least mid january. I mean there isn't a question about it, so besides the following steps what can I do to lower my temps
1. Lower graphics to medium (from high)
2. Going clean it out when I do a case swap tomorrow.
3. What else? Is there a way to underclock it?
