That should tell you the temps.

speedfan is good utility, safe operating temps for that should be around 60C for the CPU and prolly no more then that for the video card as well. cooler is better.

hi..i downloaded speedfan and installed it..
im not able to understand some of the values..im putting question marks on those which i don understand..
GPU : ~65C(GeForce Video Card on PCI bus)
HD0 : ~45C(HDD on SMART bus)
???Temp1 : this fluctuates highly.. goes from around 60C to over 85C as i open new softwares.
???Temp2 : -128C
???Temp3 : -128C
All the Temps belong to IT8712F-J on ISA bus.
Core : ~ 63C (AMD K8 on PCI bus)
Core : ~ 65C (NVIDIA Video Card on NVCPL bus)
Ambient : 0C (NVIDIA Video Card on NVCPL bus)

I hav 2 fans in my system..one attached to the mobo and one at the back..but it shows only 1..
Fan1 : ~3140 RPM
Fan2,3,4,5 : 0 RPM

My system suddenly turns off in a while wen i run big softwares like new games, Matlab etc.
Wat do i do?

those do look a little hot. actually, they look a lot hot, and I would venture a guess its your underpowered PSU. the 8600 GT requires a minimum of a 350 watt PSU. and your 5200, if its the brisbane core, runs at 65 watt, and if its the windsor were talkin 125 watts, you do the math-at idle, the PSU is gonna be runnin at about medium power, when running a game, its going to be pushing that poor thing to the limit, which is what is causing your system to overheat and then shutdown to prevent damage to the system. This power supply or one similar http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16817371016 should solve your problem.
