    Video cards, particularly the new ones, love to bake.

    First, check for real problems, such as the fan failing, a stratum of dusty build-up, or a dead rat in the case.

    Second, if possible improve the airflow in your case.

    Third, see if you can underclock your video card some.

    If none of that works, then it's time to become creative.

      you could also pick up a can of compressed air from the store. I have heard people had their temps drop a lot after giving their card a good cleaning.
      Could also spend $5 and add an extra fan to your case to pull more heat out.
      You could even get one like this that goes in an empty PCI slot and pulls hot air out and blows it out the back of the case. I used one in my old case and it seemed to help.

        I agree with Bamboo.....It's been proved that a clogged gfx card fan can cut yer cooling down buy 75%.....give it a good blast of air.
