Should my GPU idle at 50c?

According to MSI Afterburner my GPU idles at around 50c, and gets to around 55-65c during gaming. Is that to high for an idle? I have 3 case fans (Rosewill Challenger) and a Sapphire Radeon HD 6870. Nothing in my rig is overclocked. The area the case is in is well ventilated and in the open, off the ground.

It seems slightly high, but still within the normal range. And your gaming temps are just fine, so I wouldn't worry about it.

nope, very nice load numbers, the only ones that kindof matter.
