My Radeon HD 5770 that I haven't cleaned in awhile maxed out at 74 on its temperature, more or less the same as when I play Skyrim.
Same card here,was at 90 degrees last BWE.
I took it out after that and cleaned it, now runs at 60-65 degrees. :P
Don't know if it is the cleaning or optimization but im happy now.

Since there isnt healers and tanks in the game dps is all and i think damage meters are a must in gw2, the game will have this feature or we will need a program???
It will help a lot in dungeons to see what classes/builds are the best and to quit the noobs with too low dps.

Once upon a time, in the game called WoW, there were PvE fights that involved complex dynamics.  Sometimes classes devoted nothing but decurses in a fight, or kited mobs around so the main raid could down other parts of the encounter.  For instance, in vanilla WoW I had a key for UBRS on my hunter so I was regularly called upon to come do the dungeon.  In the last fight I was in charge of kiting Drak away from the raid until they cleared the 2 mini boss adds.  I was ultimately last on dps but do you think anyone ever cared?  No, because the players knew what I did was crucial for success.

The game shifted in WotLK to make everyone think DPS matters, and unfortunately the design team gave in to all the whiny teenie bopper kids who wanted to feel special by topping charts.  There are other ways of performing besides DPS in this game.  A huge portion of the WoW community who have just been playing the game for 3 years or so expects this to be a prettier version of WoW.  It's not and thank God for that too.  You're going to have to do more than just pew pew in this game.  There will come a time when a player will die because YOU didn't use any CC to get that champion off him long enough for him to heal up.  CC in this game will be a huge support and the more you play the more you'll start to understand it.  Stroking epeen here won't work.
