How Hot is too Hot?

So, can anyone quantify what too hot is? If I put a temp gauge on the heads what is the max temp before damage occurs? I have an oil temp gauge in my pan (cooler than heads I'm sure). Sometimes during very hard riding it can get into the 265 F range.
Normal riding (for me) is around 190 to 205 F. Is oil pressure more important than temp?
