Default New computer

Hello I found this site by searching google. Anyways I just bought a new Computer, and for a while it has been over heating, even when it's idling. I've asked around if I should buy more fans, but a he said that it should be fine with the heatsink and a couple of fans. My case is a ThermalTake Xaser III. Also The room I'm in doesnt get alot of air circulation and gets warm in the summer time so should I also look for water cooling?

AMD Athlon64 Processor 3200+
1022Mb Ram
Asus K8V Deluxe

Well ill attach the dxdiag

ur setup looks really good. I myself have a xaser III. What exactly is the temp on it? I cant believe ur cpu is overheating when u have a xaser III which has 7 fans. what type of cpu fan do u have? I mean AMD's run very hot and since u have a 64 bit.. it will run even hotter.
