I have the evga 6600gt. I'm wanting to know what the average temp a video card like mine could be. When checking out Everest I see 52c/126f at idle on my video card.

your temps are not that bad, I think 85C is topping out pretty bad and will start doing damage

After taking appart my video card, cleaning off the old thermal paste (which was everywhere by the way, and not by me but the manufacturer), and applying OCZ Ultra 5+ Silver Thermal Compound, it dropped my temp down to 47/117 at idle. Should it be any cooler than that?

That will be fine, just keep an eye on your temps under load
