My core GPU temp. is and average of 79 degrees Celcius. When I play a game it gets up to 90, to me this sounds very hot so I was wondering if my graphics card might be over heating or somthing.

What graphics card is this? On my graphics card, the overheat point is 178ºC. So it may/may not be normal for your card.

Alright, that is not bad then. If there is a problem your system will turn off. If you go to your drivers you can see that the overheat temp is VERY HIGH. If you are really worried about it you can clean it out of dust. And if that does not work get a new heatsync/fan.

Even though those cards have a high overheat point (has mentioned), that temp is a bit high, and if you´re overclocking it you should get a better cooler first (because at high temps the card will not perform as well as it should)
I have a 6600gt at 600\1200 and the gpu temps are more or less 40º\55º idle\full with a zalman VF700-AlCu (used to be about 50º\60º and more with the stock cooler and the stock clockings 500\1000).
And the 6600 gt is a card that like the 6800 gets very high temps.
