That seems a bit high... have you increased the fan speed at all?

More importantly, are you sure the fan is spinning at all? It probably does, but does so slowly, check the user profile in Afterburner for fan speed tweaking.
But, the crazy temp isn't such a huge issue, I've got a MSI HD4650 running at 95c constantly since its crunching at Collatz.
It hasn't died yet and probably won't die for a looooooooong time.

Remember, GPU dies these days are designed to withstand pretty high temps about 100c is more or less normal for them :D

No offense, but 95C and up is, even for a vga, pretty high, especially since treshold lies around ~105C, so 100C is not more or less normal, especially for a card with a fan, its more a sign of insufficient cooling/airflow.
I run f@h 24/7 and some WU's, that utilize all my gpu/shader/mem power, will get it to ~85C max, running Furmark and other gpu intensive programs, never make my gpu's pass the ~90C.

Did you use Voltmod from afterburner? If so remove and see if it still heats up a lot.
Also what case do you have and how is airflow regulated, (how many fans, size and position).
