    Hi.
    I am having a problem while playing video games than i think is caused by my videocard overheating. I have a 9600pro with stock everything. When i let my PC cool down for about 30 minutes and fire it up to play BF1942 my PC will freeze after about 15 minutes and it wont respond to ctrl-alt-del. Also when i feel the heatsink on the GPU it is almost hot enough to burn my finger. I think the videocard is overheating because the 9600pro's are sposed to not run very hot. I would like a second opinion if this is overheating problem before i buy this. If this is a overheating issue please recomend any other videocard coolers that are good. Thanks
