someone who has EVGA Gforce 6800gs, please answer..
i bought the evga geforce 6800gs pci express vid card, anyways if you got to Nvidia control panel, then go to Performance and Quality settings, you have a few options there, like High quality, quality, performance, high performance...my questions is by changing those will it affect any vid games I'll be playing. In the vid games they have graphic/video settings you can change, such as using high med or low quality settings for details, shadows, graphics...i'm just wondering if it's necessary to change both settings ingame and nvidia's control panel, and does nvidia's control panel affect game play graphics/performance.
Second what are safe temps for my vid card under heavy load (playing vid games), In nvidia's control panl I have the card set to warn me if the card gets to hot...I'd really like to play certain games with what the cards capable of delivering, but i'm always afraid to play with the settings because i don't want to blow the card, btw i don't mean overclocking the card, just settings.

quality, the default setting..is fine.
if your card were overheating you'd know by now. my 7900 idles between 40C and 45C...my 6800 before that idled around 40. thats about average...... if your idle temps are ok and you're not overclocking (not worth the effort imho) then you've nothing to worry about.
enjoy your new card.
