Default Graphics card overheating. Will it affect my other parts?

I just noticed that my x1900xt is reaching 105 degrees C under load. I'm going to lay off gaming until I get my hd4850, but I'm worried that I may have already caused damage to the mobo or something. Do overheating graphics cards somehow affect the mobo or anything else when they generate too much heat? My processor is only getting up to 41C load. I think my graphics card is overheating because it is not aligned to the heatsink properly.
