My friend has a 256mb Nvidia Geforce 6800 XT graphics card and it's idle temperature (when not running a game) is 60c. Is this normal or anything to worry about?

60C is not a real good idle temp, lower would be nice but the thing to really worry about is the temp under full load, this can be the card destroyer. From memory 85C is the danger zone so if your card is getting close to that under load it may be time to visit the zalman site and look for an aftermarket cooler that will suit the 6800. Zalman make some of the best coolers on the market.
