I was worried about my card idling at like 61c and i talked to the xfx people and they said this "Those temperatures are normal. We expect the cards to idle between 55-65C (Win XP desktop/Surfing the web) and 75-88C under load ( Vista desktop/3D gaming). " so i just wanted to let you guys know you shouldnt worry about it. though i turned up my fan on my card a bit. its running a 54c right now.
