Is it worth buying a new GPU?

System specs:
Intel i9-9900K (not overclocked)
EVGA Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 SSC 6GB
Asus Prime Z370-A II
Corsair H100i CPU cooler (re-pasted within the last week)
Corsair 750D Carbide Full tower case.

I have been doing some of my own research but thought I would open this up for discussion so I can get a second opinion. My GPU will idle at 35c but when under load (AAA title games) it will reach and stay at about 70c. I run games on ball park medium settings, making sure to turn down things such as anti-aliasing ETC.

The games I am running are performing without any issues, I just have never seen temps this high before in my GPU, hence my worry.

I should also mention that I have seen it mentioned a few times that the temperature I'm describing is considered "safe but a little warm" whilst under load. I'm using a programme called Specy to view temperatures and everything else is being recorded in the high 20's - low 40's under load.

Apologies in advance if this is nothing to worry about, just looking for another opinion.
