i think the thing i have to keep telling myself is... i know what im doing pretty much, and whatever main components i pick (ram, processor, mobo, video card) are going to be good... and i mean, whatever parts i get are going to be a huge upgrade over what i have right now... im just trying to find the price/performance sweet spot...
games im looking to play are like.... l4d, cs:s, guild wars, battlefield 2+2142, company of heroes, and empire:total war.... would this setup on windows 7 64bit work well?? like what qualities

You needn't worry about overheating your CPU with a simple multiplier increase. It's only when you really start pushing the voltage, FSB, and everything else then you would need to look into an aftermarket cooler.
so... if the multiplier is at 13.5x or whatever default... all i have to do is edit it to a safe level like 15x and im done?? please elaborate if you can atomic
