  1. I checked my GPU temp with everest home edition and it usually says it's about 60-70 centigrate? is that a bit hot? or not?

    I think the normal temp for the stock 6800 is around 55-60C. I was running a 5700 ultra in the same case I am now and it ran idle at 43C. My 6800 runs idle at 58C. I have 4 fans and no heat problems at all. I wouldn't be to worried.

    'too hot' depends on the case's cooling charachteristics primarily. your temps are within the nvidia specs nonetheless.
