Default Graphic Card temperatures. Just wanted to make sure.

I have MSI 8800gtx and I have it overclocked to the values in my sig.

Idling it's around 68C. When playing WoW it peaks at 71C and when running the nVidia graphic card demos, the card can sometimes reach 75C. Do these temps seem normal? I just don't want to damage an expensive card.

Yes...those are normal temperatures for a typical GTX. Others even load at 80C+.

^^Stock fan pretty much normal temperatures in a regular environment. If you have problems a new coat of thermal paste and an aftermarket fan will always help

Or if the stock fan is not running 100%, because I heard some cards have stock fans, that just run 40-60% at stock.

You must have good air flow, they usually reach 80. I actually put a fan in my case that blows directly on my 8800GTS, dropped my system temp by about 8 degrees when playing games, thing gets hot.
