Hi.
I recently bought an ATI Radeon X1900GT 256MB video card, and I just want to make sure it is running as well as it should be, and there are no problems.

In Counter-Strike Source, with High settings, 4x AA, 16x AF, 1024x768, i get 138fps on the video stress test. Ingame, in cs_assault or something, i would get 50fps - 70fps. Is this normal?

The video card also is quite hot. When I'm not playing any games or anthing, it is at about 71 Celsius. When i am playing a game, it usually hits 85.

My Specs:
GT5028
AMD Athlon 64 3800+ X2
2.00 GHz, 1.00GB RAM
ATI Radeon X1900GT 256MB

I have noticed in my desktop pc when I ran an ATI card it ran about 20 degrees higher than my nvidia card. The ATI ran around 70 - 80 and my nvidia card runs at 50 - 65. I personally hate ATI others have there own opinions. The ATI card I had was a X1600pro (it sucked) I upgraded to the BFG Geforce 7900gt oc. I get good FPS in games but when I use 3dmark06 it ranges from 20FPS - 40FPS so I'm gonna say that is normal.
