Im not sure about that card specifically, but in general those temps are not that high. Mine idles at higher than your load temps. GPU's are safer at higher temps than CPUs

61ºC load is good for an air-cooled 6800. GPU's run hotter than everything else in your PC. You shouldn't need to buy that aftermarket cooler unless you just want to. As long as it doesn't go over 80ºC, you have nothing to worry about. Although it can go higher safely, I don't recommend it.

It's not too hot. It's just hotter. Go buy a can of compressed air and blow all of the dust out of the inside of your PC. Temperatures will drop drastically. I did it to mine Friday and my CPU went from 36-38ºC idle to 31-33ºC idle. The GPU changed even more.
