too much is when you get display corruption and lockups. too hot is 85*.

Ive seen people push GT's over 800mhz on core only with bios vmod's. I really wish i had a GT to push it that far because sadly the rest of the 8800 series like my GTS don't work with bios vmods. :(

Also in my opinion anything over 90*c is too hot.

I agree with Yoda here :D
When the stinging odour of burning plastic you smell, too hot it is :headexplode:
