Yes, activity will heat up the chips. Your temps are completely fine.

For the GTX 480 anything under 90 is pretty good, your CPU is a tad warm but nothing to worry about. For your GPU I wouldn't worry unless you're gaming above 95C consistantly. Supposedly they can take over 105C but ideally you want to keep the GTX 465's and higher below 90 for longevities sake.

Your CPU temp is ok, but your gpu is kinda high. It's the nature of the beast. There are a couple of things you can do.
1. Downlaod a program like MSI Afterburner and use it to adjust your fan speed.
2. look into water cooling.
Edit: as the poster above stated, it's not in any danger, but the cooler the better for any components.

Thanks for the input much appreciated... What about the texture distortion i get on characters? Its just characters that i get this where they arent smooth like the shading is all wrong or something very noticable at character select.

Im always monitoring my temperatures while playing now and usually log off if I go afk to give my video card a break. 2 hours into the game my old one fried so now I am paranoid. Usually my card idles at 46C and games anywhere from 57C to 65C.

Don't feel bad, I found out the hard way that my SO and I can't have both of our systems running FFXIV with the air conditioner on, it trips the circuit breaker. One system in FFXIV and a/c is fine, adding my system is fine too. But I login to FFXIV and pew! Our UPS' start bleeping at us angrily. :D

Like the shadows are done with a charcoal pencil? I don't know if it's an nvidia thing or not but it seemed less noticable with shadows set to highest and the beta drivers.

Turn off Ambient Occlusion. It's not so much the fault of AO as it is the game doesn't really have a very sophisticated AO engine which seems to incorrectly use it at the wrong times.. Maybe they'll fix it later.. AO saps a lot of GPU power as well which would likely make your GPU run cooler by disabling it. As long as your screen is calibrated properly (brightness, contrast especially). Then the problems with FFXIV's AO engine is barely noticable.. If you have your brightness and contrast cranked to max, then AO will look completely wrong. AO depends heavily on having a properly calibrated monitor. If you don't, AO can actually make things look *worse*.

I have everything enabled and all settings to max, running in a window at 1680x1050 and the shadow thing is only slightly less noticable than it was with AO and LOD or whatever disabled using lower settings and the current July Nvidia drivers.

The best way to describe it would be if some one drew lines with a charcoal pencil, kinda how the edges of the maps look in game. But it's most obvious on the char creation screen. It's barely noticable in game with my current max settings and beta driver.

I would just like to point out that this would happen if you ran any 3D game on both computers at the same time. FFXIV has great graphics, but that doesn't cause your system to draw more power than, say, Duke Nukem 3D. Well, actually I'd probably bet on Duke using more power. Always bet on Duke. (this is a lie, Duke3D doesn't even use 3D acceleration on modern cards, but any game within the past few years would surely trip your power)

I have a GTX480 (EVGA) and in game the temps run anywhere from 70 to 80C depending on where I'm at. I do have the fan at 90% while gaming. My CPU (I5-750) runs about 50C or so. So all in all not to bad.

Yes exactly looks like a charcoal pensil was used... not sure but in ffxiv the AO and DoF are both unchecked thats how it was when installed unchecked means not enabled correct?
