Default CPU working temp

the same question since it runs around my head!
just finished upgrading the pc
the new system now runs ~ 50C (48 - 52) idle or running programs (I tried it for a couple of hours running couple of word windows, corel 9, dreamweaver 4, firefox, on line radio streaming)
is that normal or I need a cpu cooler (I have the original heatsink with fan)?
AMD Athlon xp 2700+
Corsair 512MB 3200
Maxtor 20G (system)
WD 80G
Abit KW7

those temps are fine, the athlon xp barton can handle up to 85 c (but thats the ABSOLUTE maximum.) I recomend 65c or lower.
