Question Highest my cpu can go?

Hey guys!
Right now I am running a P4 2.8 533 fsb computer. So what is the highest temperature that it can get without burning it out? I've had it get up to 60c while playing a game. Is this harmful???


P4 2.8 ghz 533 fsb,
512 DDR 2700, 256mb Radeon 9600xt,
20 and 40 gig hard drives,
48x cd-rom, 48x burner
