now the temps are

51c idle~72c load

ran prime95 making cpu useage 100%, and it seemed stable, but 72c, is that to hot, this is all i want:

be able to play games
system not crashing

so do i need a better cpu cooler?

This is really hot. You don't want to run your cpu at those temps everytime you play a game. Your machine might not crash but you will be considerably shortening the lifetime of your cpu.
IMO you should definitely invest in a better cooler (the Big Typhoon by all means if it fits inside your case).

is it possable upgrading to the latest bios version might have more accurate or lower temps?

You temperatures are high, but not uncommon for a Prescott. I would suggest investing in a Big Typoon.

A big typoon is better than water cooling in terms of cost/benifit... You can't do much better for $50.
