Default Temp questions for my Video Card

Hey guys,

is it normal for my gpu the 7600GT to run idle at 51degrees and when loading 61degrees according to atitool. Is the load temp too hot? I'm wondering cuz i'm not sure if that would be the cause of my computer slightly artifcating. it's either that or i guess my gpu is messed up.

CPU: AMD 3600+ Brisbane 2.6ghz
MOBO: BioStar TForce 550SE
Ram: 2x G.SKILL 1GB 240-Pin DDR2 QRs
Video Card: ATI 1950xt 256mb
Case: Cooler Master Centurion 5
PSU: Corsaid 520HX
HSF: Arctic Cooler Freezer 64 PRo

Yours runs cooler than mine, mine runs at 51C idle (with a fan blowing on it with the side of my case off, 61C without) and gets close to 70C on load.

You can try to increase fan speed with Rivatuner to 100% while playing games, it's defaulted at 65% and after I raised it my temps went down 4 C.
