GPUs can tolerate more heat than CPUs can. 75 is fine. My overclocked 8800GTS heats up to 85 under load, and it hasn't crashed once.

As Jackbomb stated. GPU's can and do have higher temperatures than CPU's. My X1650 hits 80'C or more, it doesn't bother me. I know people who's GPU temps are nearly 100'C and they have never had a problem.

GPU temp specs are a bit difficult to find but from what I've come across, the max temp is *usually* in excess of 100C. Here's an example...scroll down to "Chips" & look what is listed for "ATI's official X800 GPU temp specs":
