CPU's shouldnt be running higher then 60C. The AMD 64's are known to run pretty cool.
AMD Single core
Idle - 20-35C
The opterons are known to run a little hotter then the X2's or the single core
As for Intel, if you OC them you will get really high temps, upwards to 60-70C which then you would want to invest in some decent cooling
As for heatsinks, the zalman CNPS9500 or Big typhoon are the beste out there.
If you dont feel like spending money for those 30-50 dollar heatsinks, here are a couple of steps to cool down your temps
1) Get a can of compressed air and clean out your exsisitng heatsink of dust, and your case.
2) Rewire some cables so it is cleaner and can get some decent airflow through the case
3) Buy some cheap fans 2-10 dollars and mount them in free fan slots.

Everest. Is a Great Proggy If you need to know IRQ's, Audio codecs, Monitor ID and everything else about puter.
I'm currently using something called Hardware Sensors Monitor that someone recommended off of another forum but it never changes....ever. So I was wondering if someone could recommend a good program to monitor the temperature of my CPU. Thanks in advance.

The Video card is supposed to withstand much hotter temps then your CPU. The older 6*** series from nVidia are known to run much hotter then the new 78** series. As the 8** series from ATI i dont really konw much about them because they are crap and are a waste of money
Video card Temps
idle - 30-40C
full - 50-60C
if you have a 6*** series you could be running upwards to 80C which is OK.
If you are running hotter then 80C or want to do a little more OC but you are getting held back by the heat, you can invest in a third party heatsink and some AS5. You can run up to 100C-120C but no one really wants to run their video card THAT HOT at 24/7 usage.
Zalman VF-700cu and the NV silencers are one of the best.
With these on, with AS5 of course, your temps should be running 5-10C lower then with stock cooling, and you should be able to OC your video card some more.
