that is about right but after a few weeks it might cool down a little more when the thermal paste sets. That will normally drop it a few degrees.

The 6800GT runs really hot, as does other high-end cards. Personally, mine runs at 52-53C idle, and 75-76C load, and it's perfectly fine. The 6800GT is meant to take all that heat. But just in case, I got a Zalman cooler and a system exhaust blower, but apparently you dont need one of those.
