Windows 7: Is it necessary for me to update my AMD Radeon HD 6800 Now?

Is it necessary for me to update my AMD Radeon HD 6800 Now?

I play games sometimes on the weekend.
The fan of card is a bit noisy.
And the temperature reached 70*c wille
playing nearly all the games.
Is it high or not?

Should I replace the fan or the card?
If I sell the video card now,
how much is it worth?
It still looks like a new card.

If I update the card to a better one,
any suitable card for me?
More or less than $350.

70C? uh, yea. Stop playing those games until you can cool that puppy down some.

Is it not getting enough air? You're wearing your card down quite fast. One day it is just going to stop working, sooner than later.

Worry about getting cool airflow into that system. If you can't even touch the card without a burn, that is bad news. Replace the fan? Are you sure that will fix this problem?

Perhaps there is a cooler card on the market, but I'd be careful about going out and buying stuff willy-nilly. Perhaps someone can offer a good cooling option for you.

It should be not necessary to cool the card.
I should check carefully before the purchase.
