Hey, I have a question about case fans. I currently have a 80mm fan in front sucking air in, and two in the back sucking air out. Im putting one on the left side of the case right around the video card. Im wondering if I should have this blowing air out or in. Thanks.

Have it blowing onto the video card while it is bringing air in from outside of the case. If you do it the other way you will be drawing warm air over the vidoe card.

What are good healthy system temperature ranges while running a few programs?

I think you need to be careful of blowing air into the case, because if the graphics card fan is of equal pressure, then the warm air could hover above the graphics card.

Remember the fans are supposed to blow heat away from the components, so I would think having all fans sucking warm air out, would help to supplement the components fans.

The system temperature will depend on your installed components and operating speed.
