Furmark temps are not that important since they don't reflect the real world temps. this program is made to test stability so it will push the card further than any other game just to assure you that your card is stable.
but since you have a old corsair with 550 watts I suggest you run the card at stock until you get a new power supply. because a GTX 480 with 800 MHz core can give the psu the FINISHING MOVE in the next few days .

Also if you get only 40%- 60% usage especially in laggy cutscenes it is actually the CPU bottleneck not the GPU.

To be honest, I think you should not push your GPU further until you can solve the heat problem.

The biggest issue in your system right now is the e8400. If you can push it even further, I think that will help your fps more than overclocking the GPU, especially since Black Ops is quite CPU-dependent. Try for 4Ghz at least, get a better cooler if necessary.

what cpu do u have,post ur full system specs
EDIT:woops didnt see the post above me lol,black ops is crap its poorly coded i had troubles with my 4ghz e8500 on that game thats why i got this rig,it needs a quad core to run it properly

An e0 e8400 is about a 65W processor which means that, even with both the CPU and GPU overclocked, the 550W PSU should be more than up to the task.

As has been said by a few others your e8400 is the limiting factor here, even if you drop your card's clocks to stock and you get your e8400 to 4GHz you should get approximately 4/3.6 times your current FPS simply because the GPU at stock can still outpace the e8400 at 4GHz.

Edit: if you have the money an upgrade is probably the best way to sort it out as if TehStranger has had trouble at 4 with the same chip overclocking might not be enough to solve your problem.
