    Is 89C for a NVIDIA GeForce 6800GT a high temperature?

    Well for a gpu its quite high, is that after a 3 day nonstop gaming fest or what!?!?!?

    My whole system runs at 65-70 C, a few things you might wanna check, make sure the onboard cooling system(fan) is working correctly, if that is true, may wanna look into a fan just for you gpu.

    I think 89C is high for any GPU. I assume it's a single slot card with a low profile fan. You may want to clean out the dust or get some better airflow in your case.

    I've seen some newer AMD cards get close to that while next to each other in Crossfire, but that seems excessive, especially with an older card like that.

    Nope. It actually starts getting hot after about 10-20 minutes of gaming.

    Yeah, I took the side off of the tower, and put a box fan in front of it as a temporary fix.
    I have it blowing in, although I feel it might not be a good idea. Would that blow a lot of dust inside the computer? And do you think it would cool down well if I had the fan sucking the air out?

    I have my front fan of my cause blowing out, but i think you may defiantly need to look into either a bigger case, or more fans, cause somethings not right.
