Graphics card temperature problems!

Hi,
My graphics card has been acting really weird lately. It stays at 100 degrees celcius on idle and when I play games that i should be able to play it lags and temperature shoots up to 110 degrees celcius. Please help me with this problem.I am a beginner in using computers so please guide me through this confusing process. Any help will be appreciated.
