this happened to my friend often it did look like there was no dust or nothing and it was shiny clean next day it got to 90 on desktop and shutdown within 30 minutes so we decided to try and blow compressed air through it and it seemed like nothing came out but when it plugged it back it we were surprised to see desktop temps of 50 and gaming temps of 80 where it used to go to 110 while gaming another thing my friends 8800GT was a single slot

They do take a beating, very tough cards. Just take it apart and clean it. Then use it again! still great cards many still rocking them on here!

Probably better off with a small positive drive, but a big one will work too.

1 and 2 are really easy to solve and take no more than a few minutes of labor. Just take the GPU heatsink off, give it a NICE clean, and replace the old TIM.
Fan is still good, and there is only a bit of dust on the fan blades. I think the first suggestion might be about right...

But the card is getting replaced by next Thursday, so I'll reserve this newfound knowledge for the time when my GTX 560 Ti's TIM starts drying out.

Your new 560, you wont see the tim dry out on that. You would have probably had two new cards by the time the tim drys out on the 560.

EDIT: i wouldn't pay for a 560 tbh, 6xx series will be out later this year if you can hang on in there with you 8800gt.

I already bought it. I have had my 8800GT for three years now, resisting the urge to upgrade because it still offered decent performance. But, with framerates in the teens in The Witcher 2, and with BF3 coming out soon, I guess it would be better for me to upgrade now, keep the card for three plus years, and see what lies in store then.
