Default ami running my card too hot

i have a 2gb gt 520 evga card.. it sucks lool it only has 500 mhz compared to the 1gb one that has 700 or 810 i will be returning it soon but for now im overclockin it a bit.. so my question is .. is 80 degrees to hot for my card to run under load?

Isn't the GT 520 a low-end card made for HTPCs? What are you trying to do with it?
Getting 80 Celsius under load while OC'd sounds pretty normal to me.

I'd just get a new card tho.

Best buy has terrible prices. I have a 520 gt in my computer as a secondary card just to display my 1080p tv. As far as gaming on it and overclocking 80 degrees seems pretty normal. I'd try to return it and get a better card because a 520 gt isn't worth more than 40 dollars.

If you want a good mechanical gaming keyboard, you're more than likely going to have to purchase it online; however, there has been a few times where I bumped into a Razer Black Widow, but I'm not sure if it's really any good for SM/FFR. Plus, I'm not sure how durable it is. It's Razer. :| That's all I have to say. (I only seen one at Fry's Electronics).

And you can purchase a Logitech Illuminated in Best Buy.

Well, you could try and go to a computer convention / trade show. They usually have people selling computer parts and accessories at very good prices. I've been to this one a while ago and it was really cool. Tri-State Fairs
