Windows 7: GPU high heat

If i am gonna get a new card i am gonna get a whole PC. Getting something new isnt exactly a solution right now and of course the easiest way to fix something is to get a new one.

Attached another image
Just finished cleaning the card, a ton of dust came out and is gone now. Now i started the pc and this is what i see.. no icons on a bunch of stuff..
Should i grab my hammer to "fix" the pc or there is an alternative
AUX 127c? wow. i really... really hope that is missreading... also nah. Try upgrading some hardware and update the drivers as much as you can becouse thats a big problem with older computers. The hammer wont make you very much happier sorry. I had one of thoose computers for 4 years and im glad its over

Nothing is connected so AUX is reading wrong temperatures. Disregard that part.

Everything is up to date

Accually.. No the easiest way isnt really to get a completely new computer. Well if you got the money then that may work but upgrading can come REAL far.
I plugged a new psu and a GTX 660 into my 4 year old machine with 4Gb ddr2, 3 core 2.4Ghz amd phenom cpu and that thing maxed out litterarly everything. Though i did not use the gpu's full potential due to cpu bottlenecks.

Um.. Yeahh.. That looks normal cough..
Did you recently download new drivers?
How did you clean the card?
Have you tried turning it off and on again

Normal ? I cant click on any of those or open them , doesnt say for any what it actually is.
The windows downloaded drivers i guess for something, it installed stuff, no idea what it was for.
I used the power of blowing to clean it . Dont have any other tools at my disposal but its very clean now, used a smooth brush as well.

I did try and its ok now.
Guess if there is anything else i cant resolve will just write here. Will mark as solved when i do tests with it about crashes , freezes etc.

Get a can of compressed air and blow the insides again (you said a ton of dust was removed just by blowing)

Don't use a small brush! That might dislodge a wire or other component requiring you to check connections and reseat a memory stick or card. Use the can of air to clean and do a thorough job (don't just blow it around, blow it out of the case)

The aux temp - hmmm - that's an internal component 127 C is not good. Try another uility to read that temp.
Speccy is a good one: Speccy - Publish Snapshot of your System Specs
If it's a misread or the sensor is giving bad feedback, the Speccy "2nd opinion" might provide more information.

Anyway, your GPU temp dropped form 53 C to 35 C, your first dusting seemed to have helped (or the fans kicked on)

The system is running well now - right?
If it freezes /crashes again follow these posting instructions:
SF Diagnostic Tool - Using for Troubleshooting
Members will want to see the output, so pay attention to Step 7.

Thanks

Phantom reading. The sensor chip supports something, but there is no sensor attached. Speedfan for as good as it can be is essentially a one-size-fits-all program, and doesn't filter out things like this.

Very high CPU usage, causing very high laptop CPU temps (90c idle)
This problem began yesterday. I noticed my CPU was at 90C constantly with very high CPU usage (>50%). I had no major programs running. I rebooted several times and the program persisted. 1. I went into safe mode and everything was normal. So this rules out hardware issues. 2. I reformatted and...

What are the low & high temps that an AMD FX 4100 CPU should run between? And please list in Fahrenheit; I don't get why everyone always talks in Celsius, we get a finer resolution of ambient temperatures when using Fahrenheit.
