What's the normal or safe temperature range for graphics cards for gaming or under any heavy load? And what happens if the temps go above that?

Normally when the gpu is over temperature, it is well above 80 degree c. Most of gpu don't go any above 70 degrees c. So if you are under it, its totally fine.. really!..

Just to add... Laptop gpu have higher tolerances and can go upto 100 degress at max. Its not healthy but its how they are designed to function to keep fan speed low and silent.

Laptops also have a single cooler for both CPU and GPU, so CPU temperature will also affect the temperature of GPU.

First of all, it is around 149 to 185 degrees F.Two possibilities are there when it hits the max temperature. First, the drive will bring down the performance to calm down the temp. If it still rises higher then the system will be shutdown by the GPU to protect Graphics Card.
