At what temperature does a graphics card die?

I was running crysis with my 8600gt that i Super clocked it to a little bit faster than gts stock speed and it didnt even go up high and worked like a charm!

So what temp does a graphics card die?
 
That varies from card to card. I know ATIs can be good up over 100C, but NVidia cards are quite a bit lower. What temperatures are you getting? Also, normally the card will crash/downclock to save itself before dying from overheat (but best not to test that safety net). I have seen people run that card around 70C fine, but i wouldn't recommend too much more than that.
