Default Is 62c idle on a 7600GT ok?

As title please, just took out a noisey case fan today and my pc is much more quiet but my gpu temp is 62c on idle.

Baring in mind i dont really do any gaming, so it wont go much higer than that...............

ya, you're fine. even if you game and it goes to 115C you'll be ok more then likely, I believe the threshold for a 7600gt is 125C actually. it typically idles from 58-69C

Is it okay?? hmmmm its high, but liveable... My 260's runs at 65C on 100% load, but is slightly loud. 115C will fry your card, and you will have bsod and whatnot, the max is 110C, but aqrtifacting can be lower.
You can swap out for slower and there by quiter fans, and be better off. Getting a airflow is the important thing.

Also remember, if your cards hotter, EVERYTHING is hotter.

Well like i said i dont really do much gaming nowadays, so that temp is pretty much as high as it will get.

And also its almost silent, and my pc is running fine, display is perfect.
