80C in games is normal for GPUs. The idle temperatures are a bit high, but nothing to worry about. That may be because the GPU fan is set for silent operation so it won't run at its full RPM until the GPU gets hot.

As for Dirt 3 running smoothly but both NFS titles don't, that could be because your GPU isn't powerful enough to play NFS with the graphics settings you've chosen. Try changing the graphics settings to their minimum option in both NFS titles and see if that makes them run more smoothly. Sadly, they won't look as good.

80c temps are on the higher end. 80c and above is when you start seing problems with laging and freezing. If you are running at 80c you don't want it to run there for any lengh of time. Your idele Temps should be 30c to 35c is avg.

Do you have proper air flow in your case? As for the games you play I can't help you there. For what your rig is and the games your playing I am imprest.

thanx i opened my case and that helped a lot but for games I've tried everything with nfs I've lowered my graphics to the minimum but its the same (maximum graphics = minimum graphics = bad performance ) and the weird thing that dirt 3 is a demanding game like NFS but its working great with the ultimate graphic settings .

Oh now my GPU idle around 48 and when gaming goes up to 68 and I've played 5 hours and its OK
(with assassins creed brotherhood) and that's also a demanding game >

I don't play Need For Speed, so I'm just guessing here. Have you checked for any updates to the games? Have you got the latest AMD Catalyst drivers?
