    Try running without the side panel cover. If it doesn't overheat that way try adding some case fans.

    i would install speedfan, to monitor the temps :

    open the pc, and inspect all fans are running fine (1000-2000 rpm)
    clean all fans from dust
    if still overheating, you may need te replace the heatpaste on the cpu

    inspect the graphics card fan also - or replace it!

    if everything is ok - it can be a bad card - then test it on another pc, or test another card on this one !
