I got the readings from ntune. Was wondering if this is normal cause my card locked up a few times the other day while playing WOW over a few hours time. It's been pretty stable ever since.
How long have you had the card? If for a while now, then remove the card and remove the top plate covering the fan/heatsink and I'll bet you find dust clogged in the fins around the fan. This is a common problem with the 6800GT and yes, I used to own one.

AMD FX-8320 Vishera 8-Core 3.5GHz (4.0GHz Turbo)
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (4x4GB)
EVGA SuperClocked GeForce GTX 760 2GB w/ EVGA ACX Cooler
MSI GTX 460 (Dedicated PhysX)
