Thanks for the suggestion but are you sure that heatsink would provide adequate cooling?
That's perfectly acceptable for a GPU. Some of the reference high end cards can get into the 90C range when in load. I'm not saying don't buy aftermarket but don't buy it just for the temperatures alone, because yours are fine. If you want to buy a better cooler so you can overclock higher that is a different story. Just look at these load temperatures from an AnandTech video card review:
