Default Does DVI-D put more strain on a gpu than SVGA?

I am using an NV35 (GeForce FX5900 Ultra 256MB) with a 19" analog CRT monitor at 1280x960, and my GPU runs at about ~60 degrees. I know that is a bit hot, but there is little I can do.

Anyway, I am upgrading to a 22" TFT LCD flatscreen monitor, and will be using a DVI-D cable. Will this put a greater load on my GPU? It can creep up to 70 degrees+ when I put a strain on it with SVGA, if DVI-D is gonna make it hotter than this consistantly that is not gonna be healthy and I am gonna have to find some way to improve its cooling.

I guess my question is, does producing a digital DVI-D signal put more load on a GPU than producing an analog SVGA signal? Thanks if anyone can help.
