fahrenheit lol yeah that's normal if anything it is quite low my 8800GTS hits 70-80C. The 8500gt is designed for light gaming and htpc use so don't try and push it too hard as it isn't the best card for a gaming rig

sli give you a 40% increase in performance for 100% of the cost so unless its top of the range cards your combining I don't believe its a worthy cause especially as you can overclock the card for a 10-20% increase anyway from stock usually

Dont forget the extra power consumption .. Sli is justified only if youve got bucketloads of money and want the best of you happen to get one or both of the cards quite cheap.
