Yup, I think my GPU is overheating... How do I go around fixing that, or should I just buy another video card?


Try blowing dust out of it first and out of the whole case.

It's usually just a matter of carefully unscrewing the cooling part from the card, and then cleaning off the GPU and re-applying fresh thermal paste.

You haven't told us your load temps. Start worrying when load temps go above ~80-85C.

If AMD goes down Intel might safely release i9 for $300 and i7 for $200 and i5 for $100 and i3 for free. - su27Chaos<

If it crashes like 20-30 minutes into a game, would telling you the load temps really matter? :/

It's idling at 70 at times too

Yes, because while we can make reasonable guesses, they just might be wrong.
