Would a GeForce GTX 560 work in my computer? - Page 2

Anyways, I figured I'd have to get a better psu and with a better one I would be able to overclock the cpu (I've never overclocked before so I'm a little scared ). Also that means I would have to find replacement fans for my case because overclocking would make it really hot right?

Currently the temps seem really high though...(I'm using CPUID hardware monitor)
CPU: idles at about 53 C, when gaming it can hit about 78 C

GPU: idles about 65, gets up to mid/high 80s

All the parts in my comp have been handling these temps for 3 years so I guess they are ok with them. (unless they just crap out soon )

Also I put in the windows experience index numbers in my first post just in case they might help but I guess not .
farout man maybe u should get a better cooler before u overclock

GPU temps are fine, but the CPU seems rather high! I would take a can-o-air and spray out your case as well as get some Arctic Silver 5 (I believe that's still the best) thermal past and re-seating your CPU, you'll likely see a temp drop just by re-applying good thermal paste!
