i wasnt referring to the internal case temperatures. i was referring to the actual video card processor getting hot.
Unless you're overclocking, temperatures don't really matter, the cores are designed to handle it

Of course if it's hitting 90+ Celsius then you probably have an airflow issue

The heats actually not to bad provided you've got good airflow and a good cooler.

The GPU will add a bit more heat to the Case, but this is true regardless of the video card.

The fan shroud should hopefully direct most of the hot air out of the case.

and of course, the holy grail of it all...the heat.

hah, yeah, over 440 watts being drawn from it. now put two of those into crossfire

so, just for clarification, a standard, stock settings 4890 would use about how much power? 275w? 300w?
440W is the whole system. I don't have hard numbers, but there shouldn't be a huge difference with a stock clocked card. The OC'ed one might draw like.. 25-40 more watts.

Also, as the manufacturing process gets smaller, voltage requirements go down and since clocks remain comparable, power consumption drops significantly.

That HD 4890 tested is also a really overclocked model -- one of the fastest out actually. So it had pretty big power req's when being pushed.
