Default Cooling?

I'm building my first PC and I was wondering if my cooling would be efficient enough. My specs are below and I have a Diabolic minotaur gaming case with a 120mm case fan, an air duct right on the cpu heatsink/fan that lead out the side of the case, 2 copper heat spreaders for my ram, and my psu has 2 fans on it. Would this be enough cooling? and what are the ideal temperatures for my processor, memory,case etc.?

R.Y.N.O. (Rip Ya a New One)
Diabolic Minotaur ATX Case
Asus A8V Deluxe MoBo Wifi Edition
AMD Athlon 64 3500+ CPU
2x Corsair 512MB PC3200 DIMM\'s
2x Western Digital 120GB Serial ATA Harddrives in RAID 0
Asus 16x DVD-rom Drive
Pioneer 16x DVD+rw/-rw DL Drive
eVGA Geforce 6800 GT
Aspire 500w PSU

i have 10 fans in my computer...ive made extra holes with a dremel so i could add more...i dont think that you can have to many as long as you have them all goin in the same direction. other than that you should be sure to have and exhaust fan..but wat you have should be good

WHat he said, but just make you have a powerful enough psu to handle so many fans.
