Default Normal 8600GT (no overclock) TEMP?

My 8600GT gets up to 140 When I'm in CoD4 and I think thats much to high. But with one measly fan on it, is it really that bad? What should I set the threshold to so it warns me before I fry it?

EDIT: *All temps IN F*

And this is for my old gaming comp not the one in my sig lol

Yes, that's well within the limits.

it depends on which games.
If its like Crysis, then no.
If it was like CS, then maybe.
