Gday.
As you are thinking of selling the computer, Suggest you have a look at the voltage put out by the PSU to make sure it is within specs. It is possible that low voltage has, over an extended time, damaged the GPUs.
Download HWMonitor, run and upload some screenshots.

You're pretty good at selecting your components. :)

I looked up your PSU and it's made by Seasonic which I found to be the best (along with Super Flower) and I like Gigabyte mobos. I have a Seasonic PSU and a Gigabyte mobo myself. What make is your memory? Mine's Corsair Vengeance. I just upgraded from an i3-2105 to an i5-3570.


some folks here helped me select parts a few years ago when i built it as my first PC. Now i am waiting to have the funds to build another. I also have corsair memory 4gb/

Gday.

Your volts are within specs. The GPU temps are a bit high if it is not under load. Is any component over-clocked?
With HWMonitor running, Play a game for ten minutes then look at the temps.

this 8400 GS is very old. Every once in a while the gpu fan makes a very loud noise. During this time the temps are hotter like you see in that pic. When it is not making an odd sound, it seems to be cooler.

I was just thinking, that if you selling the computer, you would not want a come back in a couple of months if there was a problem.
You might look at changing the GPU fan, YHou may find it cheaper on the net.

I am not changing the fan because it works fine in an older pc, I'm just using this until my hd 6850 comes.
