currently I'm using my Dell Vostro 1710 which has a Nvidia GeForce 8600M GS Graphic card.
Installed is a Ubuntu 12.10 64Bit.
Is a graphic card temperature from 65° - 75° normal?
I only use the notebook for Software development. That means, some open text editors (Eclipse, TextEdit...) and one VirtualBox (Win7)...
I have one monitor attached 1650x1080 and the integrated display has a resolution from 1920x1200 pixels.
I'm a bit scared since I already had three Hardware crashes within the last two years (under ubuntu).
