just got an hp with athlon x2 64(live) 5000+ for 300 - Page 4

If you run a power supply below what your components are needing it will over draw power and will most likely fry your mobo. This has happened to me in my early years of fiddling with computers.

mixed ram is ok if you dont oc. and the 8500GT is kinda a piece of $hit. return it and buy a 9600gt or 8800gt. youll get like 4x the performance. i went from a 8600GTS to 8800GT and saw about double the fps. the 8500GT is like half the 8600.

Cichlid, 60C full load isn't all that bad especially on a card running the stock cooler. What is the airflow like in the case? I'm assuming there is at least one exhaust fan. Is there an intake fan? You could always try taking off the stock cooler, cleaning off the factory TIM and applying some AS5 but I can't guarantee that would help temps...but it may

Good luck

Turmionkatilot let it die already.

I was just giving him a fair warning...I didn't want him to buy a new PSU and it not fit.
