card gets extremely hot during FarCry and Madden NFL 2005. Temps are ~65C for madden 2005, ~55C for FarCry.

Why is this happening, System temp is 25C, CPU full load temp doesnt go beyond 40C

help me plz
I'm not sure anybody will understand your problem, since the core temp of 65C you show is well within spec for a 5950u.

It is quite acceptable for a 5950u at stock speeds to have core temp of high 80's under load. see link below,
