im concerned with the heat that the fx5900 card generates...so do you think that itll be alright if i put a fx5900 in a dell 8200? Will temperatures increase alot or not much? Im mainly concerned with the case getting too hot. Thanks.

The fx5900 is hot, but shouldn't cause trouble.

These days, no matter what company you like, be it <b>nVidia, ATi, or whatever,</b> no matter how logical your reasons, you're labeled an <b>idiot</b> or a <b>fanboy</b>, or <b>both.</b>

Make sure if you have a 5900 using the reference(i.e. LARGE) design that there is enough room in your case to fit it nicely
