Not too bad! My former 7800GTXs and 8800GTs easily hit 90C
(plenty of full steam running fans in the case). The GTX 260
behaves a little bit better in this respect.

I was told that 57Hz would be bad for video playback, but since i don't watch
videos on my PC, i don't care anyway :-)

AFAIK, this was true for CRTs (50Hz PAL vs 60Hz NTSC), but LCDs shouldn't be
affected any more ... also, even with CRTs @ 57Hz, i wouldn't expect a lot of
headache :-)

BTW.: when i was young, i used to sit for hours in front of an aging
B&W TV donated from my grandmother at least a year or so
operating a good old C64 before i got an upgrade to a used
color TV - but this was still 50Hz PAL (located in Germany).
Never had any headache because of the TV :-)
