Between 104 F and 108 F. I'm just curious in case I decide to OC in the future(replacing hsf of course) my card doesn't have a fan just a habit to type hsf.

Those temps are good for a GPU. If you plan on overclocking, definatly replace the heatsink with a powerful cooling device.

I never knew you could buy new heatsinks and GPU fans for Video cards.

If you are referring to the Catalyst Control Center, it basically put all of the ATi utilities in one.

But on certain cards you get Overdrive (updated). Overdrive is the most stable method of overclocking your GPU. It also monitors the temperature - So if it gets too hot, it will lower the frequencies slowly to bring the temperature down.

Those temps are fine for a GPU.
