    At what temperatures for the CPU and MB should I start to be concerned about overheating? Do graphics cards overheat or are their built-in fans usually sufficient? Is cooler always better?

    It depends on the CPU, mainboard, and video(and yes, video cards can overheat too). Even if something has a fan it can overheat. What hardware do you have and what temperatures are you observing?

    My CPU starts the day at around 94 F and works its way up over a hundred.
    My MB averages about four degrees above the CPU.

    Note: I'm using the internal temperature monitors on my ASUS P5n-e SLI motherboard. It's an Intel 2.66GHz core 2 duo processor.

    Those temperatures are fine for a C2D processor, but slightly high for the board.

    What kind of ventilation do you have in your PC? Fans in front/back/side, etc.

    One fan in back, one in front. I have a piece of crap case that was literally free on NewEgg.
