That is a very high temp, check the fan and see if it is working properly, there could be dust in the fan slowing it down. Take the card out use a can of compressed air and blow it on the fan so it can remove any dust particles that might be in there.

Its hot but not extremely hot. GPUs can take heat better than most CPUs.

GPU's can take around 100C then at like 120C fry, i say go buy an VF-700 from newegg around 25 dollars to lower your temps

your temps are actually normal for a stock heatsink on that card or any higher end card for that matter.

These newer cards definitely put out some heat, but like PZero said they can handle it unlike CPUs....buut yeah, to increase the life of your card it definitely couldn't hurt to get yourself some aftermarket cooling
