Hi there I am new to the pc world and have started gaming quite a bit and have a question about temps. My graphics card gets pretty hot to the touch and I was wondering if that was okay? and/or if there were any programs that I could download that would let me keep track of all temps to make sure they're not overheating.

Thanks!!!

HWMonitor, Speccy, RealTemp, etc etc... Remember to watch the temp in °C and not °F. Anything below 90°C is fine... but, obviously the lower the better.

90C is 194F. Would burn you if it were near that.

^^ This ^^

For those of us in the US who aren't used to dealing with °C remember that 100°C is boiling water. So if you can touch your card there's a very good chance it is fine.
