I recently decided upon an HD1650 video card from Dell. Kind of fell across a good deal on their site. It showed a card and there was a fan mounted upon it in the picture on their site. When the card came, in a plain box, it had no fan. I suspect that I am having program crashes running a game due to overheating. Is there a fan I can get and mount on this card? Would you suggest a model and source? Thank you. Nan

Anyways...have you spoke to Dell to ask if it should have been shipped with a mounted fan?

I could rig something up. Can you give a link to the video card?

HD1650...don't believe there's such a card. Do you mean ATi X1650 or an ATi HD3650? There's plenty of aftermarket coolers for both cards I imagine, and there not that hard to install.

I was able to find a reference to a VC ATI MSI HD1650-T2D256E/D2, PCI16x, but nothing in English.

Over heating is one possibility, and so is an inadequate PSU if this card is power hungry. Try downloading Everest Home Edition and see what the temperatures are.

I hate to ask an obvious question, but does it have a heatsink? Is the heatsink mounted or just kinda stuck on there?
