Is your PC blue screening, locking up, rebooting, or otherwise acting up when you are gaming and you see 80 degree C temps?
A peak or random 80 degree C temp on a high end graphics card or a Intel or AMD CPU is tolerable when gaming. 80 degree C temps at system idle or low loads is problematic.
A "no" would suggest your PC is operating within normal parameters.
Sixty frames per second is okay when running AAA games. Online schooling will not stress the graphics card or the CPU.
You may be worrying about nothing.

Depending on what games you're playing, 60fps is plenty decent and also do you have a 120hz and above monitor?
If you think its the airflow issue, try opening up the side panel and let the air freely circulate to see if it helps with the tempertures. If it does, that means your air inlets are probably clogged with dust and all things furry. Clean the casing and the fan would help maintain the temp to optimal.
80C is pretty normal for a Stock CPU Cooler. even 90c is acceptable for casual gaming. Why? because the temp limit is 100c. unless you're playing games 24/7 and sustaining it at 90c for 365 days a year you're good.

If your warranty is over you can try swapping out a CPU cooler tower to lower the temp by alot. The stock CPU cooler is really ... never mind. Check out noctua tower coolers and see which one suits your casing. Measure the available height you have and check out some videos to swap it out. Mine dropped from 90c to 75c on full load. just by swapping out that cooler. Then with additional fans in the casing i got it down to 70c.
Swapping out a "higher end" CPU would just give you pretty much the same heat issues. Not to mention you need to make sure your motherboard supports the newer Intel chips too.
