scary computer stuff

My computer came with a Nvidia graphics card, called a TNT2 Model 64 Pro.

My brother has loads of rich friends in university, also doing computer science and a friend of his got a brand new good graphics card and he took out his old one, which is a Nvidia GeForce2 MX 400. My brother did a dodgy deal with him and got the second hand card, I suspect drugs were involved and brought it home here.

This is like better than my current one.
I am thinking of replacing it today, cos it seems fairly easy to switch pci cards.

The only thing is that I saw on a website that it gets very hot and its recommended to get a fan for it. There is nothing about this on the official website however. It has a heat sink thang over the chip. Will it be safe?

My whole computer is gonna end up on fire, I just know it! lol

::later edit:: My brother said that when the guy took the card out of his pc, it never had one of them mini chip fan things on! I dont think it will explode into flames will it?
