    It's fine. 90C is where I would start to worry
    Society's to blame,
    Or possibly Atari.

    All cards are different, but temperatures around 60-70 are still all right. Not to touch but to operate

    I would second what is said here. Obviously the cooler a component stays the better it is for longevity. But most gfx cards can handle upto 90 degrees without issues (It wont crash or artifact, for example).

    Are your temps like this after gaming or after taxing the computer in someway, if so I wouldn't worry, maybe look to give it a clean and your case if your still worried.

    If anybody remember the dear 3dfx cards (RIP) alias Voodoo 2 or Voodoo 3 cards (I refuse to count the last generation abomination, the VSA 100 chip equipped cards as valid 3dfx cards) , they were operating perfectly fine even at around 90-100 degrees While the other manufacturers had to introduce FANS!

    Always wanted a Voodoo3
