First thing is to unplug the computer and open it up. Check the heatsink and video card fans for dust and lint buildup and clean them out with a can of compressed air

I don't see anything wrong with those temperatures you posted. Is the 81C GPU temperature while you're playing games, or doing some other graphic intensive activity? My graphics card can get up to 85C in a very graphic intensive game. My old one reached levels beyond 100C! If you don't notice any slowdown, or anything weird happening, I don't think you should really worry about it. You should also know that these temperature readings could be really off. I really doubt my old graphics card actually got up to 100C, especially since it showed no signs of slowing down or messing up.

I would do as garmanma suggested and clean out the dust built up.
