I think it's safe as well (in other words)

What I suggest is running MSI Afterburner. There you set it so it'll increase the fan speed depending the temperature. The card itself should increase the fan speed based on the temperature but it for me it's a little low.
Why would you want it run at 90% all of the time? When you're on the desktop the GPU isn't working very hard, so the higher fan speed would lower the temps but even the normal fan speed should keep the card cool enough.
If you're having temp issues, even while on the desktop, that could because of your room temp or dust in the card. If you've tried cleaning out the dust, or it is because of the room temp, you might do better finding a better cooler to replace what is on the card.

My graphic card is so stupid coz idk for some reason when the temperatures reach about 60-65 the driver crashes and windows restarts it. So in whatever games i play the screen goes black and then the game returns. This happens very often, but only when I'm playing a game (or sometimes even watching a video). BUT when I keep the temperatures in the range of 48-58, this happens VERY less. I really don't understand why the "Auto" setting in the fan can't adjust to the f*cking game I play. And even if it does reach above 60 degrees, IT'S A NORMAL TEMPERATURE FOR GTX 260; THEN WHY DOES THE DAMN DRIVER CRASH??!?! It crashes even when I play f*cking SA:MP!! Can you believe it?? GTX 260 can't run GTA san andreas properly!
It's summer now so it's difficult to cool the graphic card. The min temperature is never below 51 degrees. And I do clean out the dust.
Do I set the user defined automatic fan control to a discrete or a continous graph?

Don't ask me why I'm going to bring this up, but I am.
When I read the first part and you said it got to 60-65 degrees and the screen would go black, for some reason my first thought was a dying PSU; one that's not quite dead yet but will crap out when stressed enough. Been there done that with an old PSU.
As for the settings, what I do is just on the Fan tab just "Enable software automatic fan control" (I'm reading from my eVGA Precision but it's based on the same that MSI is based on) and let it go. I found when I tested/used MSI's it would 1% increase per 1 degree increase; so at 40C the fan is 40%, at 41C the fan is 41% and so on. You can adjust that in the graph if you want to make it run faster. Just grab or make a point and move it to where ever you want and just make sure the rest of the line goes with it.
I don't know what is a normal idle temp for a GTX 260. I also don't know what the max is for that card. I can tell you this; I have an eVGA GTX 560Ti FPB and I had asked them what the max temp is. They told me 100C. My card is currently running around 36-38C. The max I've seen without software controlled, in other words just the card on it's own, was around 90C but that was while using eVGA OCScanner to stress test it which is going to do more stress than what most games will do. The max with the Precision controlling the speed, again with same stress test, was around 80C. The one thing I don't like about Precision v2.0.3 is that the fan control is 10 degree = 10% stepping and I have yet to figure out a way to make it more like MSI's 1C to 1% stepping. I haven't tried the latest version of Precision yet.
By the way, I'm confused by your sig and your post. Your sig says eVGA 9500GT but your topic is talking about a GTX 260.

@Wolf68k: My sig is old I Forget to Update. Only Video card info is wrong rest are Same.

That's what I was hoping when you made the topic. But then you could have also been helping someone else with their problem with their card.
If you wanted to you could have done something like this to make it run at 100% all of the time
