  1. Hi,

    I was just wondering if it was normal for the fan of the graphic card (Gigabyte GTX 260 OC) to get a bit loud after 30mins to 1hour of gaming. I played Splinter Cell Double Agent and this happens.

    Thanks

    Yes this is completely normal, you are playing a game which recommend more usage from the graphic card than Windows use normally and thus creating heat on the graphic card. After you stop playing for about 15 min you will notice that it reduce its speed. Don't worry that's completely normal
