I bought a E5200 for my HTPC. Core temp says that the temperature is 47 degrees Celsius. Is this normal for a pentium dual core. I know my Pentium 4 used to run at around that tempertaure but my Core 2 duo and quad always stay below 40.

That is a little high for idle. If at load it is okay.
Make sure the heatsink is tight.
If you need more Intel push pins see here.

They sell all Intel spare parts, such as heatsinks, socket covers, etc.

Even better:
