When i start my computer my graphics card starts out like hot but not really hot when i start playing games is it because my fan has a lot of dirt in it and its heating up my computer or do i need a water cooler that bad?

clean out your system. also you might want to get some more fans in your system.

you can always fit more fans. buy a fan, mark it on the side of your case where the screws will go and the outline of the fan, and cut through the case with a diamond saw or something, DIY or you could buy a new case (or even better buy a new pc - i guarantee you can buy one better than that for $300 - that's how much it cost to set up my mailserver for work)

you also still have so many outputs from your psu, enough for many fans. just wack em inbetween your graphics card and the other PCI expansion card

you dont have to plug it into the motherboard, get one that will plug into the PSU, and if you paid $995 for that within the last year, you were ripped off by alot of money.

I got in 2007-2008 like the start of 2008 but o well it was a birthday gift
what is the psu?
PSU is power supply. The big square power unit inside the computer. This has a fan also. Do you have an exhaust fan out the back of the computer case. Also, why are you worried about heat on the video card? Cards to run hot especially when gaming. If the card is within the specs for heat no need to worry.

To the right of this fan in the case...there is another place for a fan. You can put a fan input here power it right off the PSU. Fans can be had for about 10 bucks.

You can connect more fans to these outputs from the PSU, but I dont think you need more fans unless you are overclocking. just clean out your case. handheld air compressor $2. Peace of mind priceless. zoom into the image and then see the red boxes
