Upgrading to 8800GTS will overheat CPU etc?

  1. Hello, i am planning to upgrade to a BFG GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB PCI-Express Video Card, and i am wondering if my case temperatures and cpu temperatures will increase, even if it is a slight increase. Since im new to the forum i cant post any links but the pc i have is a hp media center m8125x, if u search it in Google you'll be able to find it. I upgraded the psu on it to an Enermax liberty 500watt. There is no room to put case fans, and there is only 1 exhaust fan in the pc. I know for sure that the card is able to fit inside the case as i have already measured it. Thanks in advance.

    There's no intake fan? If not this case apparently isnt meant for anything that will increase the case temp at all.

    Dont risk burning up your card,take sometime and put a good gaming case around that badboy!
