Default High Performance [Power Option]

Hey, i have Vista, and on Power options, i put it on "High Performance"
then i ran a game, like 1hour later, checked temps, most of them was 47-49, and one of them was 53 degrees (I'm guessing thats the graphics card), are they ok temperatures, or is it best to just keep the power option to Balance? with lower temps?

Cos if there are constant high temps like 47-53 will it damage my PC in the long run? or bust it down quicker?

Thanks a lot for your time!

Please somebody help

Those temperatures are plenty fine. Having higher temperatures doesn't really bother hardware much. Sorry for the delayed response.

You're fine. Just give your puppy plenty of room around it to breathe and keep it clean on the inside. Dust can act like a blanket driving temps up.

With you... Dont bother with cable ties. Buy a new one. If it isnt properly secured, you will gain higher temps which is what you dont want to have.
As for you, your post has been reported.
