Hey fellas.
I was mining yesterday with guiminer at slush's pool and I got the average 80mhash/s. My GPU was at ~85 ºC at 100% fan speed (1800 rpm). My fan is an Evercool Buffalo and my GPU is not overclocked: 750mhz gpu clock and 900mhz memory clock. I got like 16 shares in 15~25 minutes, is it good?
Is it worth mining in these conditions?

What do you mean by worthwhile? Do you mean will you break even from the cost of power and computer parts needed to mine? Your "net profit", so to speak? Or do you mean is your hash rate sufficient to produce bitcoins at a rate that is satisfactory to you (another variable which I cannot answer)?

I would keep mining, especially with a pool.
As well, there are other tips and tricks that can help bump up your MH/s rather easily. Poke your head around some of the other forum threads and see if you can't learn small things that will bring up your hashrate some.

https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining_hardware_comparison shows 4870 at 104.6 MH/s with -w 256 -f 1, Windows 7 64-Bit, GPU Core OC to 830 MHz, GPU Memory UC to 190 MHz (saves 30 watts at outlet)

Might want to try that.

As far as if it's worth it, try calculating ...
1) how much bitcoin do you get / day? Keep in mind the current exchange rate, the last I check was USD12.xx / bitcoin .
2) how much electricity did you use?
3) 16 shares out of ?? What's the total number of shares for that block? When you mind in pool, the 16 shares just mean, you get 16 shares out of x number of shares for that block. So, say 10000 shares for that block, you will only get 16 /10000 * 50 = 0.08 bitcoin.
