    Your paranoided :) ..cause video cards run hotter than processors...if its under 70 it should be fine.

    Um...take of the side of you case..then check for dust etc...and measure the temps with the case off while playing games and idle...but i am pretty sure its normal.

    A PCI slot cooler would work well

    Those temps seem fine to me,but if your worried there are some things you could do...

    If your game, take the heatsink off and replace the cheap while silicon paste with Artic Silver, etc.. You could check to see if the heatsink makes good contact with the core/ram, as some brands coolers don't. PCI slot cooler should work as well, and you could always just place a fan inside the case so it blows onto the video card.
