Is my card running okay?

So I just bought a GeForce GTX 550 Ti to replace my GeForce 9600GT Superclocked 675MHZ 512MB. Main reason for buying it was because I play Diablo 3 and thought it would give a performance increase.

I FuMark in the background while I was playing tonight and took a screenshot of how my card was running. You can check it out here:

As you can see, it runs at about 78 degrees and the fan speed is 60%. The memory being used isn't very much but it did get up to about 550 MB during my playing session. I had previously purchased a Radeon 7770 HD but it didn't work and would keep crashing. Don't know if it was just the card or what but I took it back for this 550.

I also took a screenshot after I was done playing the game and sitting idle for awhile: http://imageshack.us/a/img811/6008/card2y.png

Thank in advance for any help :D

Any particular problem, or are you just asking our opinion?

I just don't want it to overheat. It seems to run pretty loud too. Is that temperature and everything okay?

Yes everything is fine, make sure it doesn't reach more than 90 C

Well it was running at almost 80 so what's an extra 10? Isn't it running a little hot or is that normal?

Thats normal, I use to have a regular computer case and my card was running at round 80.

Now I switched to a lanboy air and I get 70 max with a OC
