    Hey guys, this is some criticism, but someone down-voted and up-voted this thread. I honestly think you guys should stop five-starring every thread that appaears (not pointing this at anyone). Stop being dickheads whoever you are or Ill post here more frequently.

    Back on topic:

    Any solutions on an overheating passive 7600GS?

    Don't worry about them tkpenalty. I don't think many people take any notice of the stars rating anyway. Whoever it is will eventually grow some balls. ;)

    No passive cards are meant to last. :)

    I screwed a case fan onto the passive heatsink, effectively making it an active heatsink. Works very well.

    I wish I would have taken pics before I got rid of the card, it was truly ghetto. Luckily the holes in the fan lined up perfectly with the fins, so that when I screwed the fan in it bit into the sides of the fins and made a very secure fit.

    I sold the card though, upgraded to an X1950Pro.

    i was looking through someone systems specs and I saw the same power supply running 7900GTs

    i assume if they aren't having problems you probably won't either

    i would think 580w would would enough juice

    Yours should be OK, specially as you are not overclocking your CPU.

    just make sure you have enough on the 12v rail to power both cards and you should be good.

    Intergrated Geforce 6150 on an Asus board. Will be getting an 8600 series card in a year or so when I save up. I also have a Geforce 4 MX440.
