Umm... Around 80C is when you should start worrying about cooling...

Run for about... 30 Minutes.

How many fans and stuff do you have in your pc?

RMA the card, BFG is good about getting a new card out to you fast, i think including mailing i had my card back in a 1 1/2 weeks (2 weeks tops) and that was standard chepo fedx mail... Yes the card is factory OC'd but they guarentee it to be stable, if it isnt then they need to get you a new one.

If you want to see if there's a problem with your videocard, download ATi Tool:

http://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/259

Once installed click "Scan For Artifacts" if it finds artifacts, somthing is wrong with some aspect of your videocard, if not, I think you need to reinstall drivers. Yes I am aware that you have already used driver cleaner pro, but follow the steps in my FAQ (Section 6):
Windows 98/2K/XP Reformat Guide.

If you still have problems after you've followed my guide, then (more than likely) there's a problem with your videocard.

Also, I was wondering, do you have sufficient cooling? How many fans are in your computer, what size are they, and how much air are they pushing (if you know).
It's not overclocked, it's overclocked by factory default hence it shouldn't need to be dropped.
