Re: card heat up
You need more air movement inside your computer case. install a case fan or replace the existing one with a faster or bigger one.
try to install one in the front of the case.
Also make sure it is blown out (clean) in there.
Dust will kill a computer.
make sure that there is nothing blocking the front or rear of the computer.
do not put it in its own cubbyhole in your desk. leave it out so it can get air

Hello, I am the technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Download the driver form the NVIDIA website. At www.nvidia.com
Click their drivers/support button and then enter the details of your graphics card model into the fields. Click download and save the driver to your computer's hard drive. Once downloaded double click the downloaded file to install it.
not sure of the game but pci graphics cards are not for gaming, that pc is a bit old- you need a pci express graphics card to game thses days. Also the 6200 is very weak as a gpu and very old- Nvidia is now in the 10th series of cards. Get a new computer definately with a core 2 duo cpu and at least a nvidia 8500gt grapgics card
First the temp on your card is operating at pretty normal standards. Most GPU's operate anywhere from 45-65 deg idle up to 75-125 deg under load. Your card is pretty much fine where its at but replacing the idle heat sync with an actual fan will help to cool the unit down.
You should find gpu coolers that hook up to the 4-pin 12 volt power connectors usually found to most of the hardware compenents inside the computer.
However, if you do decide to get a new cooler for your card, at that expense, you may as well look at getting a newer generation card. Like the 9xxx series or late model 8xxx series. These have come down significantly on price and for perhaps 20-30 dollars more can upgrade to a newer card that already has the fan heat sync.
What Monitor settings are u using? Try higher frequency & if its a 17" monitor use 1024 x768 setting(resolution) and frequency 75-80 Hz. Also check the nVidia website for driver update for this model. I recently saw that there is a new driver in this category!!!!........sodeep
