i'm gonna have to go with Modki on this one. you shouldn't try to make another card look bad by talking about your temps and conveniently forgetting to mention that you have an aftermarket heatsink on it. apples to oranges, bud.
Frances, i don't own a 2900, but it does seem like the only people talking about how hot they are are the idiot reviewers on Newegg and the people that don't own them. all 2900 owners i've talked to said the temps are fine, even better than your 1900.
if temperature is a huge worry of yours, keep in mind that the 2950XTX is due out in a couple months and is rumored to use less power and run even cooler than the 2900s.
PS you really can't compare Michigan temps with Southern California temps. your temp vs. mine means nothing.
