I'm currently running the powercolor HD7950 boost edition with a core clock speed of 925Mhz, memory clock: 1250Mhz. Temperatures under load exceed 80C with even a minor (75Mhz) overclock. are these safe temperatures or do I need an aftermarket cooling system? thanks for any replies, Mike.

Max temperature for a GPU is around 100-105 before it burns. I would never let it go past 90 though

Thanks csf60, this is what I thought before reading from too many sources on the internet! So many mixed impressions on what is normal, safe and dangerous for a gpu temperature that it left me confused. So at 1Ghz, a safe temperature would be below 90C?

pretty much. A GPU stands heat better than a CPU. However, I don't like that high temperatures because they usually make fans very loud. So even if that temperature is fine, you might want an aftermarket cooler to lower noise.
