the temperatures reach almost 80 Celsius in gtav i'm considering changing thermal paste on it(gpu is like 2 years old and had problems that seem to not show up on my pc) is it worth changing the thermal paste on a gpu with possible issues?

Hello.:)

Even if the question(s) seems "unnecessary":
Did you clean the Fan and the heatsink ? Is the GPU Fan running ?
Did you watch him ? Maybe it is on halt when your System is idle but how is his behavior under full load ?

Thank you.:)

Change fan curve if your worried. Tbh though on the 390 that temp is actually pretty normal. Wouldn't worry unless if actually starts throttling performance
