Question My video card is overheating but its not hot


Jul 15, 2020
So, i have a old 2009 hd 5850,and its actually pretty good! but since the last days something rare is happening, when im playing a heavy game like crysis 3 with high graphics( i know its not heavy but it is for this thing)it gets hot obviously but it doesnt reach the limit probably it is at 60-70 degrees and the maximum value is around 80, and when it "overheats" the pc turns off and its quiteirritating when im playing with friends or something like that, any idea whats going on?(sorry for my bad english ,im just an argentinian 12 years old boy soo, yeah...) i dont think it helps but the proccesor is a athlon x4 and if you need more details about anything about the pc you can ask me
