I have a 2 year old 5750 that i will soon replace because of this problem but I do want some of your input.

while running games with 100% fan speed it reaches 85-88 celcius with just a few mins of gaming

I ran furmark and I stopped the test once it reached 95 celcius and it was still climbing

There is no noticable just anywhere on the fan heatsink or card because I clean my system every 3 months

This is kinda two questions but why is it overheating so badly and what would be a good upgrade for me I have a 730w psu coming in tomorrow with 2x 6+2 pin pci-e connecters :bounce: 
I was thinking either 7750 or 7770 and crossfire once I upgrade to an ATX motherboard as I have an mATX board right now.

So give me your input on what you think (ps. my system has 3 120mm high performance fans for ventelation and my cpu runs very cool at 35-40 celcius)

Well you could go for a 7770 if you have the budget.

If you are planning to cross fire, might as well just go for a 7850 now.
You will not require a new MB. and the card is a monster overclocker.

I have the MSI twin Forzr edition @ idle it run at about 35 C.

The max that i have seen on the card while playing battlefield is 55 C.

It's not worth going crossfire for cards like HD 7750/7770. Go for single card like HD 7870.

Furthermore, if you'd like to repair this card from overheating, it wouldn't be hard at all. You'd need to buy some hermal paste (costs $5-10), remove the cards heatsink, clean old thermal paste with rubbing/isopropyl alcohol, apply new thermal paste and put the old heatsink back. That's it!
