So I recently got a new desktop computer and it gets hot at the back where th GPU and CPU is I assume as I brought a pre-built. I am wondering if these degrees are fine..

Nvidia GTX-1060 6GB - When gaming 80-85 degress Cel (normally stays 82)

Intel i7-7700 - 50-70 degress Cel (normally 57)

85 Celcius is 185 degrees. That is too hot. 57 for the CPU is not extremely hot, but it shouldn't be getting that hot. I would recommend either taking the PC to a shop or if you can do it yourself, to put some new thermal compound on the CPU and upgrade to a better CPU fan. In the GPU's case, are you sure the fans turn on? 185 fahrenheit will kill that GPU in short order. You can also apply new thermal compound to the GPU. 185 makes me think the fans are not working. Also adding a couple of case fans one at the front drawing air in, and another at the back pushing air out. You can download MSI Afterburner (for the GPU) and turn the fans on to a higher speed, see if you are still getting high temps. https://www.msi.com/page/afterburner

I talked to a computer expert and apparently its alright. But anything over 90 is bad

You definitely need more fans, I would conjecture. That would be too hot a temp for my card, for sure. Mine runs at 54 to 67 celcius in game, but I have 7 case fans. Don't forget about the MSI afterburner. You can turn your GPU fans on all the time or just increase the % to a higher setting. Here what some experts think... http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-3124398/85c-hot-gpu.html

85C is ok for a video card; they can get quite a bit hotter than a cpu. 70C for the cpu is ok IF it is under 100% load ie while running a stress test. If that temp is being reached under a light or normal load, it is too hot.
it gets hot at the back where th GPU and CPU is
Neither of these are located at the back of the case. The cpu is near the upper/middle of the motherboard and the video card is below that. The exhaust air from the video card goes out the rear of the case which is what you may be feeling. The part of the video card that generates heat is pretty far from the rear of the case.

I wasn't saying that 85C is out of bounds for a video card...I just wouldn't be happy with it if it were my rig, and would be looking into getting it down.
