Default Heat Worries

Since suppsubly the new ati radeon 9800 xt fixes the heat problem, but it sitll produces temps at 60+ , is that hot for a video card? \

anyone that has one of these I need imput on if yall've had problems with it(the 9800 xt that is)

and should i worry about heat being an issue with my current setup(see specs) and with the video card thast they say gets very hot(although its the most powerful out there ritght now)

I read a post about it, and it overheating because of Cats 3.8 not keeping them at a safe Temp when overclocked, but this was a long time ago post. like nov 18 2003, has anyone else read this too?
