GTX580 Question vs gtx295

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi All,

I got a small problem with video cards ^^
can't find the right one!
My question is: does the gtx580 run hot?
I have a gtx295 (EVGA) ATM while gaming and under load it lets off too much heat (the only game i play mostly is pes2010)
my room becomes too hot and the heat rises to my face and it's like having a heater on full and the temp is on 60 - 65 degrees cause i got the fan at about 50 - 60 % speed. Does any one have this kind of thing happening?
also i would like to buy a gtx580 soon but i'm wondering will it do the same with the heat problem.
also just to mention my pc is ok i had 2 5870 in crossfire as well before and heat was not a problem but the performance was not very good.
so if anyone can give me their opinions on buying the gtx580 please let me know!
Thanks alot ^^

The gtx580 doesnt run hot. Mine runs a little below 70c at full load overclocked.

I got 3 fans,
the prob is not the pc or grafics card temp cause they dont go over 70 Degrees,
the prob is the heat that is produced buy the pc from just running the gtx295.
i don't think i would ever like to try overclocking it lol
