F or C? My temp stays around 71 when playing a game. Is this good or bad?
Its in Celcius...71 is a little high, but it shouldn't hurt the card in any major way. But it will degrade its life and performance a bit.
What Card do you have?
I have a ATI X800 Pro and it runs idle at about 47 C and while playing a game at max. 70 C.
With the ATI-Tool (3d-View), i get up to 77 C, but never more.
71 C is normal and no problem. A GPU will get much hotter then a CPU.
As said before 71 is high, but it shouldn't damage the card in any major way. But it degrades its life and performance. If you get 70+C temps, try to reduce those because all that will happen is the card will lose performance and its life span will drop.
It depends on your card. A 6800 series card for example runs at around 70C which should be fine. The 6600 series runs cooler. I'm not sure about current generation ATi cards though.
