Default HOT GPU?

Ok i have a low end gpu and it has a heatsink instead of a fan and while playing crysis it gets to 80-90 degreese celcius are heatsink gpu's suppose to be this hot (as i overclocked it). also what will happen if it gets too hot will it just be the graphics card that doent work or perform as good as it should, and will some of the other components get damaged by this overheating?

If the graphics card is running too hot, you'll see artifacts on your screen while gaming (they look like discolored dots) or you'll see discolored lines, sometimes the GPU will just crash, or just go out.

It'd be best to tell us which GPU have, because different GPU's run ideally at different temperatures.

well, you can rig up a case fan to blow at your gpu, and that'llo cool it off.

"Silent" gpus aren't made for gaming, more for media boxes.
