About 50c I would think for CPU have a look what it reads in the BIOS. your problem is more likely to being Graphics drivers

lol sorry for that typo it is meant 2800. i downloaded a program which read my cpu as 44-48 degrees. couldnt be any problem right. and why would it be graphics drivers. can you tell me more. should i updatethe driver or what.

They are always updating graphics driver as they all have bugs. And also improvements to run newer games. When you but a new Graphics card the drivers will more than likely be out of date

where can i get the updated drivers?

What Graphisc Card have you got click here download the system info one, and unzip and run to find what you have got, Or if you have the PCA new Mag its got Driver Wizard on it so you can check all the drivers on your system.
