Question How hot can a XFX 7600GT AGP 256 DDRR get....

before its in trouble.The fan still spins ,but it's on it's last legs,XFX is sending me a new fan.Playing COD4 it's getting almost mid 70's,when i first got the card it was running to about mid 60's.Is there something better to cool this card other then stock fan,that's cheap and not alot of #$%^%$ around with?Is this card running normal temps?

How hot can I let this card run?

I think this is a great card for a AGP.

Thanks
