How long has it been between cleanings on the card? Dust and dirt build up can cause excessive heat pretty quickly.

You can also check to see if the heatsink is still tight, or if the thermal paste needs to be replaced.

If you don't have the card's fan speed set manually try setting it 55 or 60% and see if that helps.

I would reseat the heatsink again just to be on the safe side, and if it's still doing it consider replacing the card.

As fast as your temps are rising either the fan or the card is defective. I would lean towards the fan. Does the fan spin up right away when you start the computer? If not, even a 2 or 3 second delay with a 3d app running is enough to cause you trouble.

Just a thought - if you reseat the heatsink, try the card again, but if it still does the same thing, pull the heatsink back off and make sure it's actually making contact with the gpu surface. If not, that is the problem.

Yeah, the image stays too small to see the numbers. Maybe use the forum code option from Imageshack?
