have Ryzen 5 2600 and Zotac GTX 1650 4gb not super, when playing Resident evil 2 Remake High to max graphics 1080p getting 72c-78c Max GPU temp on it, and when playing DOTA 2 1080 Ultra High it can get 150fps, and 90-130fps in all out teamfight, but also getting 72c-78c GPU temp, If cap the DOTA 2 FPS to 60fps, getting 55c-60c GPU temp. Question is, is it okay to play 78c GPU temp max?
Using MSI Afterburner to lower powerlimit since it affects GPU temp limit too, should use it or not? what does lowering power limit do? but maybe lowering it affects performance? is it okay to play 78c in tripple A games?

GPU Idle temp is 36c-39c
GPU temp in tripple A games is 72c-78c Max
GPU temp in Valorant 55c-70c
 

RTX 2080

78 degrees is fine. Of course lower is better, but there is nothing wrong with hitting 78 degrees while playing a game.

Your GPU will increase fan speed as the temperature gets hot and when it hits something like 85 degrees, it will reduce clock speeds to lower the temperature.

Turn your power limit up all the way; it will allow your GPU to make the best decision when it comes to balancing performance and heat.

If you are worried about heat/airflow, you need to install more/better fans on your PC tower and manually adjust your GPU fan curve on afterburner so that they spin faster.
