Have overclocked the VGA?

Did you remove the cooler for a while and placed it back without the appropriate volume of thermal paste?

please tell us:
what power supply do you have? Brand, Watts, fans, etc
how many fans do you have in the case? how are distributed? is the fan on the 6600GT working?
which kind of case is it?
Also, describe the problem you encounter... with details.

Temperature is indicated as °C (Celsius degree) or Farenheit?

I have seen the same problem with a VGA where it was overclocked, probably a return sample.

Another question, does the cooler contacts perfectly the chipset?

Heres my system

MSI K8N NEO2 PLATNIUM
1gig corsair pro 2.2.2.5 DDR400
3x westerndigital 120gig SATA Drives (RAID)
3500+ AMD64 (Original Fan)
Leadtek 6800GT (yes the fan is working)
Thermaltake 420 watt power supply
2x Pioneer A07
1x Pioneer A08
ThermalTake Xaser3 Running 7 Cooling Fans ,2 front Fans blowing over the hdd's ,2 side fans blowing over the motherboard card etc ,2 back fans blowing out the back ,1 top fan blowing air out the top
Theres the basics

ok with that of the way here is my problem

playing games my 6800gt gets to roughly 50°C it sit idle at 34°C degrees the games lock up for a few seconds maybe 15-20secs and plays for another 30 seconds and does it again and it keeps doing this till i turn the game off and a it has really bad rendering problems when it starts to play up the screens jumps around you see through walls etc. and as soon it is back to the desk top it runs fine

but my processor also seems to be running hot correct me if im wrong but sitting typing on this forum and i noticed my cpu is sitting on 60.9°C degrees isnt the little to hot as well

Cheers

if the card and cpu are running ok could it be a driver issue and not a over heating problem im running the stardard drivers that come with the board nvidia 5.03 from msi and the nvidia drivers 66.93 for the 6800gt

Cheers
