That is not a good brand of power supply, would be a good idea to replace it if you want your system to last for a while. http://www.thinkdigit.com/forum/power-supply-cabinets-m...

That's a good video card, and the CPU should run things fine, unless you are trying to max out the settings in the games at high resolution.

If you were having a power supply issue your computer would be crashing, but it MAY be the power supply issue, just very unlikely. I'd try a clean format of the system, install the drivers again and see how it runs.

If you have heat issues, re-install the heatsink with new heat grease, maybe get a better cooler, better case, another fan, whatever would work with your setup.

Your model is the OC version, it will probably have higher temps than a regular one. Add more case fans, you can replace the stock fan/heatsink with something better, make sure there is no dust clogging vents or fans.

Maybe just a bad sensor, are there actually issues with the system? Try blowing a fan on the card directly and measure the temps then.
