Default Temp question

Hi as you can see from my sig, i have a 6800 with all the piplines and vertex shaders unlocked. And its overclocked. What i was wondering was the temps. What should it never get past? The highest ive seen it was 59C and i dont know if thats good. Also, is there any program that records GPU temps?

Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Oc'd to 2.9ghz
ECS 570 SLIT Motherboard
2 gig of Corsair ddr2 677
Western Digital 250 Gig HD
Evga 8800GTS 640mb Oc'd to 615/1000

59C is fine.
As long as it stays under 90C it's good enough. The point where damage could start to occur is 120C, but at high temps there could be artifacts. My friends 6800GT was running at like 95C-100C when under full load and he started to get artifacts.
