hey, i just built a new pc with the following specs:

Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L : Q6600 : 8800GTS 640MB : 2GB DDR2 800 : Audigy 2 : Rosewill 650W : Coolermaster Centurion 5

While idle, i have the following temps (C):
CPU: mid30s
8800gts: mid 60s
System: 42-50

my system has reached 60 once under load, but i really havent stress tested it too much due to the high idle mobo temps.

my case came with an 120mm rear fan and a 80mm front fan, with specs as follows:
Fan Dimension: 120x120x25 mm
Fan Speed: 1200 rpm
Fan Airflow: 42.865 CFM

Fan Dimension: 80x80x25 mm
Fan Speed: 1800 rpm
Fan Airflow: 26 CFM

i just bought a thermaltake 120mm to replace the rear fan (not installed yet):
RPM 2000 RPM
Air Flow 78 CFM

what else can i do to cool my computer?

Those temps are just fine for that system. The only thing I'd be worried about here is the power supply. Although I haven't heard bad things about Rosewill, they're not known as one of the higher quality brands. A bad PSU can take other components with it, if it dies.

cool.

i guess i was just comparing this comp to the last one i built an amd xp 3000, which never had the cpu running cooler than the comp itself.

as for rosewill, i know they arent the best regarded psu manufacturer, but the reviews for this one were all positive, and rosewill customer service is very responsive.

Yes, be careful with rosewill psu's, I've had a couple in my other systems fail on me
