My System Specs

Default

What software are you using for the video? Anyway, working with video you WANT 100% CPU because that means the software is properly using all its threads (and therefore gets the job done more quickly).

For your gaming non-issue, check how many frames per second are being pushed at the selection screen - IIRC the Starcraft 2 menu actually drove GPUs more than the game part did.
Is this your card? GIGABYTE - Graphics Card - ATI - PCI Express Solution - Radeon HD 7000 series - GV-R797OC-3GD
If so, it is a design that dumps all the heat into your case, so you may also want to look at improving your use of case fans - see Arinoth's still-valid sticky on the subject: Video Card Overheating Prevention Tutorial
