If you haven't bought the cards yet.
You can get a HIS Raedon 5670 for about 70-100, probably on tigerdirect/compusa still.
I got two and crossfired them.

For that you'd have to have a Crossfire-compatible motherboard. :) That mobo does have it, but not full x16 in each.

So I'm confused, where are we up to in this thread?

You asked me to compare temperatures between Speedfan and my Intel drivers. I'm just wondering if I update my graphics card will I have any problems with my CPU temperature based on the temperatures given.

Ah that's right, so the suggestion of case fans was introduced. It should be fine, just make sure your case fan slots are being used to give good airflow.

So what parts are you considering? Have you purchased anything yet?

No I haven't. I want to purchase everything at once to get some sort of a deal. Not sure what kind of case fan to get. I posted one before it was only $2

Not sure how long it would last, and how much air it would move, and how noisy it would be... but hey $2 is cheap for a fan.

Shop around and throw us some deals, we can give you an idea of if it's good value.

Should I be looking for a case fan or a CPU fan or both?

No, just the case fan. The CPU would already have a heatsink and fan on it.
