thats about normal. why you would spend more on an aftermarket cooler than what the card is worth is beyond me. just replace the card, or point a fan at it.

Is their a lot of dust on it? Try cleaning it.The biggest issue with old cards and overheating is due to dust build up.

What is the load temps?

it has no dust build up and i cant afford a replacement ( might be years) before i can even get up to 100 bucks just to get ripped off again

for 100 bucks you could have got a 5770 or gts450......... if you go on ebay you could probably get an 8600gt or something for $30 which would be better.
