So, I finally got my new video card! Thanks for everyone here who helped me. Was alot of work just to upgrade that. Had to buy a new power supply AND a new case, just to run it. x] Anyways, everythings all running and looking good so far, but here's my question, what temperatures are safe for it to run? I'm watching them closely as I know the default fan speed for the cards is terrible.. It's currently running 40-48c in gaming. What are my danger zones here? Thanks!

Nothing to worry about there.
GPUs are able to take a lot of heat with out any issues.
Untill you are in the 85°-90°C range you will be just fine.

If you still want to lower them a bit, use RivaTuners fan speed control to turn your fan up.

Yup those temps are COLD, atleast in my opinion. You got nothing to worry about.
