Default What is the right oil pressure reading

I have this greddy gauge and I'd want to know what the right reading would be. When I start the car and its cold it reads about 7.5 and once the car warms up it reads between 6.5 and 7. Does that seem right? Thanks

General rule of thumb is 10 psi per 1000 RPM's. So at 2000 RPM's, roughly 20 psi, at 7000 RPM's, roughly 70 psi.
