System temp =/= GPU temp. Is this okay?

O hai.

Nice and concise:

CPU: 26c
System: 37c
HDDs: 37c
ACPI: 14c

Graphics card: 65c

It's an XFX8800gtx extreme (too many x's). I would've thought 65c might be reasonable under load, but it seems a pretty constant thing. Of course, the fan adjusts for noise, so it's on 59% most of the time, only kicking up to 100% during gaming - keeping the temperature pretty much the same, but just to clear, it's okay being ~65c normally, right?

    Depends on it's tolerance. Check the documentation if it says anything about it.

    That's about what my 8800 sits at. You should be alright.

    How hot does it get under load?

    It should be okay at that temp idle. The general rule is, the cooler they stay, the longer they last.

    Then again, I had a CPU that ran hotter than hell for years and it never gave out.

    My 8800GTS 320MB runs at like 40-50C idle and 60-65C under load. Though my room is kinda cool right now, so I imagine it might go up 5 degrees C or so on a warmer day.

    Your temp doesn't sound too bad.

    If it makes you feel any better the 7800GT I recently replaced used to get up to 95C. It would freeze up for a few seconds every now and then but never once failed.

    One time I ran my X1650 at 100c for about a minute before I realized I had accidently turned the fan off... Doesn't seem to have caused any permanent damage. With a 20% overclock it runs about 80c at full load, 55c idle.

    Yeah, my XFX 8800GTX sits at around 60c average. Don't worry about it.

    Your GPU should never be the same temp as your system temp. The system temp is the interior air of your case. If it gets up to 60+ or your GPU gets down to the 20s/30s, you've got something seriously mis-reading in there.

    Aye, GPUs regularly get up higher than your case or CPU temps.
