I have an Athlon 600 (yes, yes, I know - ancient) with 256mb ram and TNT2 (that has a shitty fan which makes more noise than the average car). CPU and Mobo typicaly run at about 40 degrees. Have a full tower case with 2 exhaust fans (not including PSU one) and various ones dotted about on CPU, graphics card, CDRW etc... Thing is, system restarts should the temp rise above about 55. eek !

Mark,

yep that case is fab, but dont really want to be spending about half the price on my PC for just a case!!

I found a VGA cooler on http://www.coolerguys.com/cpucool/video.shtm its only 7, but it cost bloody 30 just to ship it to the UAE!!!

thanks everyone for helping

Then you should think about getting some better ventilation, Of yuour computer restarts. Get an exhaust blower which will blow all the hot air out he back.

Really all I would say is try and get a better fan for the processor and try and a fan on your graphics card

I don't know about an agp fan, maybe a whole new agp, my geforce 3 came with one on already. Try jungle.com, amazon.co.uk, or watford.co.uk, don't know if they'll deliver out your way. Try them anyway.
