I just bought my Palit GTX 460 2 GB and yesterday tasted it on my favorite game Aliens vs Predator 2010. The temperature jumped up at 81 C . A friend told me that this temperature is very high and my VGA will die. Please give me some information if this temperature is normal. I haven't clocked the VGA. The fan at 81 C is at 74% load. My case is open and is pretty old - there ain't any fans for good airflow. But from what i was told this won't matter and in addition i don't have at the moment more money to spent.
