And it's constantly overheating, i applied custom fan profiles for it, the fan spurs up to 100% at 55 degrees celsius to avoid overheating, doesn't work that well, i even took off the heatsink, scraped off the old "thermal paste" - sad excuse for thermal paste if you ask me... went to my dads, borrowed some Arctic Silver, put that on, it dropped the temps a bit further but it still overheats, only when playing *ANY* 3D Game though, like Farcry, GTA IV, Etc, and i don't have it overclocked, i actually have it about 100 mhz underclocked, here's my speccy profile, any help is appreciated:
Operating System Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit CPU AMD FX-6100 Zambezi 32nm Technology RAM 4.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 819MHz (9-11-11-29) Motherboard ASRock 960GM/U3S3 FX (CPUSocket) Graphics Generic Non-PnP Monitor (1920x1080@60Hz) 1023MB GeForce GTX 550 Ti (MSI)

How's your case temperature and airflow? These coolers blow air into your case.
Also define overheating...Does the card start artifacting? Your PC shut down? What's the operating temperature during gaming?
my PC shuts down once the card reaches 62c while i'm playing Farcry 3, i have 7 fans inside of the case, it's a minimal airflow case but it is getting good airflow, CPU is at 25C, M/B is at 33c
