Temps on GPUs are in the 50s while playing D3 (Vsync ON). CPU hitting around the 45 mark. My room sucks dick and is really small, with mini-storage room connected to it. My ambient temp in here is a lot higher than average. Smooth as butter here.

This is with a modest OC btw.
Most nVidia cards have a rated thermal limit of 95-105C. AMD cards typically have a thermal limit of 100-110C.

With reference cooler, the HD4850 could easily reach it's 105C thermal limit.
He's not using a 4850, 8800, or whatever other cards you guys are mentioning. His temps are too high as is, the cards can stand higher temperatures but that doesn't mean those temps should be accepted either.
