, i brought my graphics card (xfx 5850) for £60, im very pleased with its performance and doesnt let me down however its cooling is terrible (link below), when playing games it peaks at 85*C and idles at 50*C

now for little money i understand this will fit:

It will perform better, but 85c is fine for the GPU, and if you're worried then make a custom fan profile in MSI Afterburner for it to keep it at a lower temperature (with obvious expense to sound)

Yes it will bring your temps down IF you put it on correctly, if not, you could be screwed.
PS: Good job on the card
