An average temperature doesn't really have a meaning, different CPUs dissipate different amounts of heat, the temps I posted before are for an Athlon 64 2800, my Athlon thunderbird idles at 50 degrees, full load at about 58. The only times you can really compare temps is with the same CPUs and preferably the same chipsets

Another 512MB of RAM would go down well too. Both much more effective upgrades than a water cooling system to extract a *potintial* (not guranteed, OCing comes down to luck) few hundred extra MHz.Going for a mid range card like a 6600GT and 512MB RAM would improve your gaming performance 10 fold. OH and if you can find yourself a cheap 9800 Pro then get one, there's not point dropping a lot of cash on a card at this stage.
