After playing a lot of Company of Heroes for some reason my card was reaching temps within the low 70's? Does that sound right???<br />
<br />
After I play BF2 for a while I'm usually only in the mid 60's range . . . so does it have to deal with the game?

Yeah. The number of polygons and the type of pixel operations varies greatly from game to game.

Same reason a CPU get's hotter doing Prime, than it does when encoding a DVD (usually)...cause it's working more parts/hotter parts...<br />
<br />
Don't worry about it...those temps are fine.

You could always water cool my 7900GTX cards never get above 45c.

The hottest my two cards have hit in a game is 57C for top and 53C for bottom on air.<br />
<br />
Mind you I mounted a 120mm fan in front of the two cards to add airflow and it helped signifigantly (before fan mid 60's was max). Course I am running them both at 695/895.<br><a href="http://assets.overclock.net.s3.amazonaws.com/5/57/5733b29f_vbattach33921.jpeg"><img src="http://www.overclock.net/image/id/616519/width/525/height/525/flags/LL"></a>

yeah also you have two of them in SLI, so that takes a lot of the workload from one of them and puts it on the other, I have one so it does all my video applications lol, but I like the thought of mounting a fan in front of it, i'm going to see if I can't do that . . .
