Hi. My EVGA GTX 260 Core 216 (626/1350/2106) runs ~ 58-64C when playing Crysis (max settings, 1366 x 768 2x AA) with fan speed of 80. is that normal? what would be an ideal load temp for this card? (im planning on keeping it for a while) lastly, does putting the fan to its highest speed damage the card or decrease its lifespan? thanks

At 80% i think it's ok, but never set the fan at 100%, it can shortened it's lifespan... :) 
About your temps, that's normal. Just make sure u have a good airflow on your case.

64 C under full load is excellent. Either your room is very cold or you've got excellent airflow in your case. My GTX 260 goes to 76 C after 10 minutes of MW2 and with the GPU fan to 80% and with the side panel removed and case fan blowing directly across the GPU!
