If you are talking celcius, yes, that's fine...

70-80c is where temps start to get dangerous for a CPU..

However for Video cards it is higher, like 80-90c, I believe right out of the box some video cards run rather hot, especially the NVIDIA Video Cards like the GTX 580 etc..

As a general rule of thumb...

<40c = Great

50-60c = Warm

60-70c = Very Warm (Danger Zone for Hard Drives)

70-80c = Hot (Danger Zone for CPUs)

80-90c = Very Hot (Your Video Card is Running Hot)

90c = The dangerzone for Video Cards..

Remember Freezing is bad for electronic components because they get hot, so if you took your computer outside and ran it in the winter it may fail because the parts are hot, and this will cause condensation (water), so keep a hot computer out of the cold!
