can you give more specs about the system and the card ;)

and are you overclocking it?

get at least a case fan on your box, sounds like some massive overheating...

First of all, I think you would need more ventilation in that case. You have some overheating there I believe. If you have one fan only, I would put at least one more, maybe in the back. Another thing would be to put some cooling on the card as well.
Just out of curiosity, which card is it? What brand?

Hm... no problems whatsoever with mine relating to heat, even after I bumped the RAM to 250 from 200, but I also have an intake fan blowing directly on it. Meh. Still, the thing has never even gotten remotely warm for me.

MY CARD IS MSI GEFORCEFX 5200 128 MEG

I AM BUYING A PCI FAN TO PLUG IN UNDER THE GFX CARD
