My soon to be old computer (building a new gaming system) uses an Nvidia geforce 8800GTS. It's temp is around 60 idle, but goes up to around 87 when gaming!!! Is this normal for that card?

Also ive bought gtx 295's for the system im building and i'm wondering if you guys know what there average temps would be with good airflow.

Thanks Yoosty. And to the guy before it's a GTS 640.

EDIT: Wow with that download you suggested i increased fan speed 10% and temp went down to normal temperatures =)
