I recently got my evga geforce gtx 480 and i was wondering if it is normal for it to be such a high temperature when playing games like fallout new vegas mafia 2 and black ops. black ops temps usually between 60-65C. When playing fallout the temps go between 70-75C and when playing mafia 2 the temperature is constantly at 80C.I wanted to know if these temps are nor because i was thinking of getting a graphics card cooloer.

Yeah, seems about right for a 480. They're hot bastards. It's a good idea you have there with the cooler. Something like this is probably your best bet:

80 aint hot. Believe me, some crazy review samples were hitting 90+ without heeding the rom update.

80C is nothing to worry about on the 480.

^ Wot he said. That's actually pretty damn low

My 470 reaches 74 with the fan on 80%.

If you want to see just how hot and loud it can really get fire up Furmark*

*On second thoughts don't. I think the power pinch would take down your entire local grid.
