Default New system - Enough power?

I finally built my new system:
AMD X2 4400+
ASUS A8N32 Deluxe
2GB PC3200 Dual Channel ram
X-FI XtremeMusic
MSI 7900 GTX
250GB HDD WD SATA
Gigabyte 3D Aurora Case (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811233001)

Now I have a FSP Group 500 Watt PSU (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817104934)

The PSU is perfectly fine. However, I noticed my CPU fan, case fans (total of four I think) spin rather slow (approx 900 rpms)

And my CPU (Asus X-Mars, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835193002)

runs at only 2,057 RPMS (which is OK I guess).

My motherboard status:
vcore: 1.41v
+5: 4.95v
+12: 12.16v
cpu temp: 105F
mb: 107F

I was playing a game (King Kong with my nephew) and I kept getting messages popping up saying my video card was over heating. I think the temp went up to about 212F. I touched the card and it actually was so hot it burned my hand (the sensor was right).

Why would it be doing this? Could my PSU not be giving my fans enough power to run full speed (resulting in overheating)?

The system actually makes no noise. My laptop is actually LOUDER.

It could be that, or what if all your fans are sucking air in and not pushing any out?

They are pushing out... It's weird. This card has a huge heat sink and it over heats.

Are they all pushing out? If that's the case there's not enough cool air getting in to cool the components off. Set the front and side fan to blow into the computer, and the rear fan to blow out. If you have a top fan make that blow out too.

There's two fans in the back. No side fan. The other fan is on the HDD area.

So how about the top fan blow out and the bottom blow in? Or other way?

HDD area fan suck in air, and the two in the back blow out air.
