You cannot depend on Speedfan to be totally accurate. I would check in the BIOS to see what temps are showing there. I'll bet they are a bit lower. Although 69° is slightly high it's really not that hot for a graphics card. My Nvidia 6600 ran at 48°c all the time and upped slightly when playing games. Maybe you should check the GPU cooler to see if its attached good.

Installing new BIOS can be somewhat tricky on some motherboards. Read up all you can before tryint to do this. Do you feel you need new bios? Just because a game is slow does not mean the BIOS is the problem. There's many factors you need to check. Downloading and running Diagnostic utilities is essential to finding the best hardware to run the latest games.

You have another problem that may be affecting your games. Your PowerSupply voltage is low enough on the 12 volt and 5 volt lines to cause you many problems. 4.22 volts on the 5 volt line can cause the cdrom drives to slow down enough to affect you FPS. Also, maybe the 12 volt line is barely high enough to run the MB correctly. I had a AMD comp that was crashing in games and locking up all the time. The 12 volt line was 11.86 volts. Replacing the PS with a good one stopped all the crashes and lockups. 12 volt line voltage was 12.11 on the new PS, and the 5 volt line stayed at 5. 18 volts, no matter what program or cdrom game i was running.

ok, so i got to buy new power supply, ok :) could u recommend me one ? :)

and this screen was taken when pc was almost idle, i meann after playing any game GPU temp was reaching 90*...

i tought that maybe new fans inside would help, but they didnt. i have one on PS, one in the front wall , one in the back wall , and one good , big radiator on cpu,and one on the graphic card... i just checked and every one of them is working fine. u think it might by because of weak cooling?

I do not run cheap power supply's. I have customers that run some cheaper PS's without problems. I usually buy the Thermaltake purewpower line for them. While they have good voltage, they are somewhat too loud for me to use them in my own computers.

Thermaltake Purepower 430 watt

I presonally prefer the PC Power & Cooling silencer series

or the Enermax liberty series because you can use only what wires you need.
