actually you are wrong. my MSI 6600gt just starts to slow down at 127c. 68 is kinda high but not enough to get the fps to go down.

Does anyone have any idea why my system is running so poorly? My friend who has a 2600 amd chip with an older ati 9600 card is getting an average of 75 fps...
i would go through device manager and make sure that all the right hardware is listed. also in CS:S video settings make sure Vsinc(i think thats what it's called) isn't on. also try to turn down the settings just to test what happens.

Yes vid cards can take 120C. But ofcourse running close to these temps will have a huge effect in the lifetime of the card.

It also takes time for the arctic silver 5 to start working to the best of it's potential. So like in one week the temps could go a little lower.
