I have a question for you guys. I'm a bit of a newbie so bear with me....I have my MSI GF4 Ti4200 oc'ed to 295/605. Anything higher and it locks up. My question is, is it safe to run the card on the verge like this all the time. Do alot of you leave it set as high as possible? I remember reading about someone who burned out a card somehow. Since I just got it I don't feel like killing it for a few extra fps...It seems like it's getting pretty hot, I can't leave my finger on the back of the gpu for more than 1 or 2 sec...is that normal? One last thing...I have the standard heatsink on it, is it worth upgrading to the Thermaltake? Ok I think that's all, thanks for the help.
