I got the readings from ntune. Was wondering if this is normal cause my card locked up a few times the other day while playing WOW over a few hours time. It's been pretty stable ever since.
How long have you had the card? If for a while now, then remove the card and remove the top plate covering the fan/heatsink and I'll bet you find dust clogged in the fins around the fan. This is a common problem with the 6800GT and yes, I used to own one.
