The temp limit generally for all GPU units are 80C Full load...Try and keep under that.

My card has been up there, but it's not there 24/7. Load for me is 70C load on stock cooler.

As long as it is under 115C (well, 125C, but IMO thats too high) nothing will happen. Your card will start to chug and probably get BSOD's around then, but your card won't be harmed.

Older cards (mostly AGP and early PCI-E cards) could only take up to 95/100C before they crapped out, if thats what you were thinking.
