Sorry if this is a stupid question.
Not really. The only problem there is how noisy it is. If it's too loud, you can drop the fan speed a tad and let it get to 80C. Who makes your 470? You should have a good enough warranty that it'll last a pretty long time, unless it's one of the exceptions. I have very old cards lying around.
