Thanks for the replies guys. The card is about 2.5 years old, I reapplied Arctic Silver 5 about 6 months ago. I do have the back of the laptop off, and its elevated with a cooling tray under it. Basically im running this system at the best possible physical vantage. Nothing I do physically to the computer (Placement, cleaning, etc) Is going to help lol. Ill check out that nexus thing, thanks again guys.
EDIT: Ok so I DL'ed the "Better Performance Mod" from Nexus and im running it on Ultra settings, no problems. Maybe a tad bit of lag but only a few seconds every 15 or so minutes. I dont know why it workds, it just is right now. Thanks.
