ATI 9700-pro 128mb agp card high temp

  1. Ever since I've been using vista build 5384 I've used an Nvidia n6200 256mb
    agp card and it's been great Aero works perfectly with it
    I also have an ATI 9700-pro I decided to try it out with windows vista
    I have a dual boot system with windows Xp pro as my main OS, firstly I
    booted to XP pro the card ran perfectly
    Then I booted to windows vista the card also ran perfectly aero worked
    straight away my performance rating went from 2 to 3 however after about 30
    minutes the card started overheating and artifacting
    So I booted back to Xp pro with it, without letting it cool down, and it was
    back to normal again I played Doom3 with it, for 39 minutes without any
    trouble at all.
    But back in vista it artifacted again after about 30 minutes
    Has anyone else had this issue?
    Or is this simply because windows vista uses more resourses form the video
    card than windows Xp ?
