um well what are u saying exactly that you think it ur cpu or ur video card?

what are you cooling your cpu with?
and how hot is your 9800 pro?
is it under warenty? if so send it back if not then take off to some store and buy a zalmen heatpipe line cooling setup or somthing to cool that video card.

on your cpu use artic silver 5 thermal paste and a good aftermarket cooler.

heat can make problims really fast.

make shure you have you bios updated and your video card drivers are uptodate

Many video cards lower their clock speeds when they get too hot, so if you have solved your overheating problem but haven't lowered temps enough, your card may still be clocking itself down. You might want to consider getting a GPU heatsink and fan.

It's also possible that it got damaged from the overheating too.
