Windows 7: Custom Computer at 70C While Gaming (Is it a bad thing?)

I will, I have learned a lot since I first put this build together. I am currently dusting each part and putting it in its box as to keep it safe and dust free until I get my motherboard back. I'm still looking for new coolers, any ideas?

Air coolers or Liquid ?, if your concerned about RAM clearance something like (eg -Corsair Hydro Liquid CPU Coolers) will not cause a RAM clearance problem and prices are not to bad

Their are many good air coolers and they are big and various prices but the first one that comes to my mind is below.

Noctua NH-D14 CPU Cooler - Newegg.com

I would recommend looking into self contained water cool. They work great and don't take up all the room on the motherboard. They also don't put a lot of weight hanging off the motherboard. Also because of their size they allow better air flow through the case.
Their are a lot of pluses and I don't know of any negatives.

As awesome as that cooler looks, I am closer to the $30-$40 range.

Sorry but I have no idea what to suggest in that price range. Maybe others will.

One of these should do well, depending on how much room your case has for cooler height.

In a perfect world I would want to get one thorough Best Buy, since I have a gift card there. Please keep the ideas coming. Thank you all.

I am marking this as solved because I have enough info to proceed when I get my motherboard back. Thank you all for your help.
