Hey just wondering if anyone can give me a hand figuring out how to fix the problems with my video card,
I can run windows with no problems but whenever I go into a game which uses 3d graphics such as Counter Strike Source, after about 5 mins my computer freezes and the screen turns black as well as the speakers hissing on my ears. I'm not too sure if this card needs a fan but I dont believe I have one on it and dont think one came with it, any help would be greatly appreciated

If you have a 9800 you should have a fan. If it does not I would recommend you not run it until you install one. You need a $10 fan, or you will burn the GPU out. It is easy to install.
