Hi Guys, Thanks for all your help, links, and advice. Special thanks to faladu as your post gave me the confidence to continue using my PC. I have take everything on board. A monitor as Stephanie suggested and a case fan plus a PCI exhaust fan to extract the hot air.
IM Away for a few days now but will install on my return. Stick around please guys as I may need help with the installation. Again many many thanks to you all.
