1) not a bad temp at all for idling, and even sweeter if thats under load

2) how much money do you have to spend on ram and what motherboard maker/model do you have?

gpu MIGHT be a cause for concern. However, most thermal diodes are a few degrees high/low. that and gpus usually have no problem surviving temps into the mid 60s i believe...

if that video card is overclocked, lower the oc a lil..

if its not, check the fan and make sure its running, also clean the heatsink out a little if its clogged with dust (i suggest a can of compressed air).

for ram you didnt mention if you were going to get rid of the old ram and overclock with this ram or if you were just going to add this gig onto whatever you have right now.

if you are going to overclock your memory, the memory that you have (newegg link im guessing as there are no other links/references) will NOT allow you to overclock very well at all...

if you want to overclock your memory, take that corsair valueselect memory out and buy some OCZ rev 2 platinum memory for 166

there are a ton of options at newegg.com for around 150$, the only thing i can really suggest is to look around and compare for yourself

if you just add the memory in my previous post to the memory you currently have, youd probably get better performance in memory demanding games and apps...

but you wont be able to overclock any of it because you will be limited by that value select stuff
