Hi, I'm a little worried about my GPU temps. I have a 9500gt 1gb which is in my tower that's cramped for space. The GPU has barely and room between my wireless adapter card but I can't move it.

My idle temp is 58-60C
while playing games it goes about 70C

is that a safe temp range?

Should be fine. GPUs can handle higher temps then a CPU. Do your best to keep dust out of that machine, clean the heatsinks, etc every few months and you should be fine.

No worries friend,most GPUs are capable of reaching 100 celcius.Your gpu temps are fine.

That is nothing. Mine is 53 at idle. And in games around 70-90. Hit 100 when playing Bad Company 2
