Before you consider installing any new fans, or changing the setup you currently have, consider downloading a tool like RivaTuner which you can use to manually control the fan speeds of your video card with.
I wouldn't know a thing about what to increase my fans too ;-;
It depends on what your video card is and how many RPMs the fan can reach, but RivaTuner should have it represented in slider or percent format with the top speed being 100%. Try forcing the card to 80% of its max RPM for now to see if it helps with idle temps.
Alright. It's at 64% right now. But I'll bump it up.
64% is a bit high for idle temps. If you can, try getting a fan near your computer to blow air towards the vents of your case.
Also, here's a picture of changing the fan speeds: http://www.circuitremix.com/images/83/rivatuner.jpg
