    Video card temps - watching videos

    Hi guys,

    What would you say are average temps for watching/streaming HD quality videos. My MSI 280x hits about 44- 48 depending on the room temperature (or the amount of sun my room actually see!!).

    Playing games tends to hit the mid 70 range, wondering if its worth adding another PC fan(maybe at the bottom).

    Thanks!

    *Edit -Should probably have mentioned that i'm currently using the default Afterburner fan settings - worth putting a custom profile on?

    That sort of temperature range is completely normal for that GPU, I wouldn't worry about it.
