Default should I be worried about this temp?

I just downloaded a new version of speed fan and there is a new sensor added for gpu and its saying its at 58c and there's a fire icon beside it. Everything else is around 30-35c.

that's nothing, that's even an acceptable cpu temp and gpus are designed to run much hotter than cpus...

Well that takes a load off my mind. I didn't think the 50c range was healthy for even a cpu because once mine got to about 52c I noticed that programs didn't run as well and the computer wasn't as responsive but that could have been another issue altogether

I presume it would be, at 50c you wouldn't really expect to see a deterioration in responsiveness. Don't worry about any of those temps.

58C on an overclocked 8600GTS is just fine. They can run up to 80C with no problems.

the new video cards are designed to run at quite high temperatures so there should be no worries.
