I never knew higher resolution increases the temp on the video card(s).

Only for nVIDIA graphics cards. My Radeon HD 5850 stays the same idle temp no matter the resolution.

More pixels means more information that must be processed. GTS250 is quite a few series below the 5850... as it was not meant to power my current setup.. thus is why I'm considering a better option. My old setup was crossfire 4850's.. which idled at 70+c... why I swapped for tri-sli 250s soon after

decided on water-cooling setup with SLI MSI N480GTX-M2D15-B GeForce GTX 480 (Fermi) 1536MB 384-bit GDDR5

On a side note: Review to be incoming as I pit my SLI 480s against Crossfire 5970s owned by a close friend.

2500x1600 is the resolution of the monitors.. the tv is 1080p. Must of worded it wrong in a previous post.

check out the review of the GTX 460. The website claims that it is a overclocker's dream and it beat the GTX 470 and GTX 465 when overclocked.
