    For the VGA card, take a look HERE . Just make sure that if fits on your card.

    For the RAM, take a look HERE .

    Good luck!

    I assume he means the tempretures of your hardware, sometimes Motherboards have sensors built in the check the running temps of the motherboard and the CPUs, check it out in your BIOS (F2 During Bootup) and then check this thread.

    My CPU and generally inside my tower used to be too hot, so i added several intake fans and i get a much better running temps of my componants now, i dont have to work about anything over heating and the like.

    Yeah those are normal but what about the video card temperatures. Use a program like CPU-Z or Speedfan to get those. They're available in the downloads section of TechSpot.
