    Anyone known what an acceptable GPU temp for the 9400GT is? My niece has
    a PNY GeForce 9400GT 1024mb card that seems to be running at fairly
    high temp (71 C ) without doing any graphic intensive work.

    Only if your ambient is very high and your case is crowded. Normal
    temps should be around 40-50C or less at idle. For example, my 9800GTX+
    runs 62C under load. It idles around 50-54C depending on ambient.

    You'll have to either clean the card's fan, your case, or see about a
    replacement cooler. Note that up to about 70C or so is technically
    "safe". Much more and you risk video corruption and graphical
    artifacting, not to mention spontaneous shutdowns.
