In my opinion, good idle temps are anything between 30 and 50, mine averages at 37'c Idle and goes to 60 at max.

"I was wondering what are good idling temps for an nvidia card that is Air cooled"
Sorry I just hate people who are lazy when typing on the internet.

It all depends on the card. A 9800GT then idle temps are down at 25-30 degrees. A GTX 260 the idle temps are at 35-40 degrees.

Also 60 degrees max? My 260 breaks that regularly when gaming. The 260's max is up at 85 recommended but you can exceed that up to 90 degrees as long as your not running it 24/7 with that.

If you say what card you're wondering about I can tell you the recommended temps for idle and load.
