60 is very safe for the card. Video Cards, can go up to 90-100C. But I wouldn't recommend it at those temps, as it can decrease the life of the card.

Yes.

You haven't done any stress tests to make sure your card is stable?

just try not to go above 70c, i do agree with fantastik250, but usually 90-100c is for the power hungry top of the range cards, not for mid-range, there is no reason it should ever go past 70c, its not bad, but it will drastically decrease the cards longevity.
