You're asking a tricky question. Keeping the inside of your computer as cool as cool can be starts with a well ventilated case, a lot of case fans, a top of the line heat sink, and a lot of tender loving care :wink: . To give you an example, my case has 6 fans and my power supply comes with a thermal conductor that doesnt emit any heat. So it depends on how far you want to go in keeping your system cool.

The most heat is generated from your cpu (especially AMD), so if concentrate on that, you sould be ok. Buy a top of the line heat sink, or if you're set on getting a whole cooling system, thermaltake has one of the better ones I've seen (http://www.thermaltake.com/watercooling/cl-w0005bigwater/cl-w0005.htm). You dont need a cooling system for your graphics card, it doesnt emit a lot of heat. So in conclusion, try more case fans and a wicked awesome heat sink.

Luckily my computer case has a sensor attached to the cpu that displays the temperature on my front panel. I've heard good reviews of Motherboard Monitor, it has great features AND its free! Check it out at http://www.majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=311, just download it from one of the download locations at the top.

Btw, before buying more fans for your pc, make sure there's room for them. Most cases only allow 2-3 fans max. I have a rather beefed up case that allows for a max of 6 fans, of which I only use 4. So just double check that before you spend your hard earned cash!
