Default Heat problem.

So, I recently got a new, pretty decent computer last November.

Power Supply is 750 Watts, I don't think I should have a problem with that.
NVidia GeForce GTX 260
AMD Phenom II X4 955 Processor
4GB DDR2 RAM

1. Does my power supply have enough Watts to support that?

I hope it can, because I've had heat problems with this computer for a while. My room has perfect ventilation, the computer is set up in an open area, I don't think that it should be very hot.

I play WoW occasionally, that's why I bought the computer mainly. I also have a side fan on the case, the Power Supply has its fan, but the thing is is that it blows down into another fan, and then into the back side fan, which there is one attached to the case, and another attached to the mobo.

What should I do?

Download Speedfan
Give us the readings.
Then download Rivatuner
Use Rivatuner to control the fan speed for your GFX 260.
I have the same card and I run the fan speed at about 75% when I game.
Plus, what case do you have?
And can you take a picture of your case so we can see the fan layout? It's hard picturing it with words.

Thanks for the tip with Rivatuner. I set that up. Now, for Speedfan, how can I give you the readings?

I'll be posting pics later this night.

All your temperatures are normal.
Sure your GPU is a little hot, so just raise the fan speeds.
