980 Temps?

Those are perfectly safe and good temps. You may gain a few degrees at most from a fresh paste application.

I recently owned a used 980 off ebay. I needed to know if i needed to change the thermal paste if it is too hot.

Temps. for graphics cards usually start gettin bad around 95c, but it's preferred to keep it around 75c or below in general; if it starts gettin too hot, then it could be a ventilation issue and/or thermal paste on the actual board itself down the road, so keep a heads-up
