I played a Chrysis demo just to see what this video card can do, and I ran HW Monitor with it. It reported 122C:

Try checking Rivatuner and ATItool and see what they have for temps.

If they say the same.. either
1) You have a very very hot room
2) You have no case flow
3) You have bad wire management
4) If none of the above are the case, its RMA time.

Card shouldn't go above 100C. Although I wouldn't go above 85C if you wanted it to last awhile.

That is way too high man. At least keep the 8800GT under 80C if possible 70C.

OK, here's different temp monitors:

Some match, some don't....and I don't know what to trust. I installed ATI Tool but it doesn't show me the Core or Memory speed. I think I may have other issues but I don't know where to start.

Edit, I just noticed the max HW monitor temp on the GPU, I think it may be a tad off
