ok i say about 4 months ago, i had the same geforce fx ultra 5200 with duel monitor support. it started to get toasty with each each use. but blue it off , thinking it was becuse of the duel monitors, I had running. well the following week i used it the apg started to literly smoke. ( killed the card in seconds but was able to still use my pc ) the one i am on now and not the new one i am on now. its kinda twiches every 15 minuts or so ) the new vid card is the same as the old ( dont worrie i am going to get the 9800 pro.
