Your temps are fine. Some Nvid cards reach the 80's, while the ATI cards sometimes get to over 100 o.o

Download RivaTuner (I think that's the name), and you can increase fan speed from there. You could also get an expansion slot fan that blows directly on the card, if you're worried.

you can also use EVGA Precision. on the interfaces there are slides to change the fan speed though i've never tried it since my card has passive cooler HS. :) 

before that i tried using riva tuner but it has problem detecting new version of drivers on my pc so i'm using precision instead. and yes it works for all Nvidia card, not just card made by EVGA. (mine was Gigabyte)
