Today i got a new case and new motherboard..There is a sensor right below the graphics card that has a reading of 80 celsius. My GPU then stops responding and resets itself (ATI Catalyst software has this program called VPU where if ur graphics card stops responding it resets it self) when it resets it will work fine for about 3/5 min before reseting it self again. Process continues only the reset time gets shorter to about every 30 seconds. This only hapens when i play games (Halo, F.E.A.R., Counter-Strike Source) does anyone know what this means?

80 degrees celcius is really hot. You need to add some type of fan or liquid cooling system to your graphics card because it sounds like it is sending your system into thermal protection. It only happens when you are playing games because they are by far the most graphic intesive programs.

I am 80% sure that BFG makes nVidia cards so probably not. I would look at getting a Zalman just because they make amazing cooling devices. Newegg has tons of different ones. If you decide to get an aftermarket cooler, make sure that it will fit your card (all the Zalman's have a list of compatable cards and ones it will not work with).

Another plus to Zalman, they are all (or most) under $50!
