Hello

I think my graphics card is over heating.It's at 60C when i'm not playing any games but when I go in games it goes up to 80C.Is that good or should I be worried?

It's time to find out why its that high of a temp. These cards are known for their loud and poor cooling fan systems. You might look here for a replacement fan assembly.

Which fan would be the best? And it can't be a big one cause my tower is small and can't hold much.

Since i do not know your system you will have to do your own leg work to find out what fits. You can take a ruler and take measurements to find what will fit in the space you have. You can then go to the webpage and see what the measurements are in all the fans there to see which one will fit. If a ruler does not fit take a piece of stiff wire and bend it to fit then measure the wire.

Heres a inches to mm conversion calculator.
