Since i put my Zalman heatstink on my Vid Card it hassn't gone above 55C but i think anything 65-70 should be looked at as a concern. Even 55 is kinda hot but i have no problems.

Cheers-

anything under 80C load is fine imo (for 6600gt, don't know what card you have)

i have my alert set at 90C

the highest i've ever reached was like 70 or so, so i don't really worry about it
