I'd do some fan/heatsink mods or back down the OC even if you aren't having any visual problems. Don't run at anything near 90C, I'd stay at 85C or below, preferably 80C with any card.
That was a hot day, it's more 65c-73c in games with the fan on low

I run Lost Planet with my mod 8600gt at 900/950, GPU core temperture read 90 degrees the whole time. G84 chips are just amazing ~
I would go higher on the core but I just can't get a good enough mark
