Default Really hot GPU, or mistake?

Is this normal? I thought that 55 was supposed to be pretty hot! What's with this?

I punched out the extra PCI slots, and all the fans seem to be working. It's a 7600GT. My CPU runs at about 40*C and the Mobo at about 32*C. This is twice that!

Should I worry?

a little suggestion make sure you have good airflow and no cables are blocking the airflow that takes the hot air out. but still no need to worry.
