xp media center edition
2 gig ram
scythe 120mm case fan
coolermaster centurion case
Whenever I am downloading, Azureus is the only thing running.
The reason I didn't think it was Azureus is because I was downloading up to 100 files at a time a few weeks ago with no freeze ups.

You may need an aftermarket cooler and fast! If that is in celcius, your video card is running at 233.6*F!!! If these numbers are right, I say your lucky to still have a video card

Although this is an article on how to make your PC super quiet, every section contains product ideas that are quiet and push lots of air, so I used this to look for new fans for my case.
Read through that and get back if you decide to get fans or something.
EDIT: Be aware that if you add slot based turbine fans, your computer will get a lot louder. Although they cool, they are also very noisy (most of them at least.)

Turbine Cooler - Loud (it's a turbine, I know it'll be loud) but good
The only problem is your 80mm. I would have NOT recommended that one in a heart beat. It is sooooooo loud. I would have rather seen you get:
Quiet, and move a decent amount of air. If noise isn't an issue, it's a great fan. I however like a quiet PC. *shrugs* Opinion.

edit: Okay, I think I found the problem. Speed fan will give a really high temp(or really low) if that particular sensor is not hooked up. One example I saw had a reading of -128 or something. So the high temp I was seeing was really nothing. So I guess I ordered a bunch of fans for nothing. Thanks for your help and advice.
