Default Fan help!

Not sure if this is the right place but I'm in dire need quickly.

Well anyway, my computer has been running at extremely high temperatures and I've decided i should have more then one fan in my case..(excluding the cpu fan)...

I need to know couple of this.. Firstly, which one of these deals would be better for a gamer with the following specs:
amd athlon 2.4ghz 3800
1gb ram
1 harddrive(80gb but size doesnt matter)
sapphire radeon x1800


Theres this deal:
10 of these for 13$ Newegg.com - MASSCOOL FD08025S1M4 80mm Case Fan - Retail

or 1 of these for 14$ Newegg.com - Thermaltake A1357 80mm Case Fan - Retail



I also need to know the ideal locations and air flow directions for my case..

My case is a basic box, I need to know (if someone can an image would help) where to place fans for best results and which way the fans should be blowing for best results(intake, exhaust etc)..

Thank you whoever can help me a ton! As you can see I'm finding my way into the world of computers.. and please be nice, I'm only 15
