    Alright, i'll try to post a picture later on tonight, but i went ahead and installed a fan into the back of my case. I also dremmeled out the hole to provide the least resistance when exhaling the hot air. We'll see how that goes.

    If this doesn't work, then i need to go to the next step. What do you guys recommend as far as narrowing down which piece of the computer is getting hot? Maybe it isn't my Video Card, and it's something else. Where should i go to see what the good tempratures are and what everything should be at?

    Cut a nice big hole in the bottom of that case for a 120MM fan. Then cut a nice big hole in the top of that case for a 80MM fan. Then cut a nice big hole in front of that case for another 120MM fan. Problem solved.

    hahaha YES! That's a lot of cutting. I do have the one in the back, so i want to see how that goes, so far so good. I do plan on putting on in the front in the next month or so, i'll keep you updated. My video card... when i play games... hovers around 80*C. Is that too high? And, should the processor, motherboard, and video card, all i should be concerned about as far as overheating and causing my PC to crash?
