I was wondering how hot cards get in crossfire. Just for example I have a 6770 and it gets to 60 degrees in my case while playing BF3. If I were to add a second card how hot could it end up being in an average gaming situation? Thanks

5-10° difference is not uncommon but it is all based on the airflow in your Case! 60°C is a very low temp for a card under load, most cards having around 100°C as max operating temp.
Depends on the airflow and space between cards. If the two cards are sandwiched together there could be 10-15 degree difference at least. While rolli59 is correct, I do not think cards should go above 70-75, MAYBE 80 degrees.
