My video card fan is making some ugly sounds.. It will sound normal for a few minutes then it will make a ugly gringing sound for a couple seconds, almost like the fan is scraping the sides...
I pulled it out and checked the fan for debree ect and found nothing.

soooo, I guess I will have to replace the fan on it?.?

How do I go about finding the proper fan to fit it ect ect.

The card is a:
Gainword Geforce2 pro 64meg (red) with a stock gainword fan on it *sorry I looked for a picture of my card but came up empty

i don't know for sure about the fan question, but i do know that a vast majority of the video cards do not have temperature sensors installed in them. sorry. the best you can do it put a sensor on the backside of the card. it'll get you a lower temperature but will give you a general idea of what is up.

the easiest thing to do would be to attach a Crystal Orb, or if you want to OC you can epoxy a Socket7 heatsink to it
