Your card is getting on in its lifespan. Try reapplying the thermal paste. Seems to have helped others with this issue. It may have dried up. Also make sure your card is dust free.

VRMs and memory chips are cooled by thermal pads which over time do wear out and lose their effectiveness. The best option would be to retire it and buy a new card. A modern card of equal power would be the HD 7770 which costs from $70-$110, though I would step it up a bit more to the HD 7870, assuming your other components can handle it.
