CPU temps normal?

My new rig I just built this past Friday...

AMD FX-6100 x6 3300MHZ 6 core (socket AM3+)

Seagate 1TB HD 7200 RPM

Kingston 8GB DDR3 1600MHz

ASUS M5A97 motherboard

XFX 6770 video card

My CPU temp has been 32 degrees celcius when idling and when I start playing my games it goes to 42 degrees celcius. I was wondering if these are acceptable temps? My video card idles at 40 degrees celcius and goes up to 52 degrees celcius when I am playing my games. I am playing games like Diablo 3 and Company of Heroes on MAX settings and don't see any problems in either game. I'm just wondering because it's my first build and I'm kinda nervous about it. Especially since I am not sure how effective I was at applying my thermal paste. With my CPU I didn't use the heatsink and fan that came with it. I used a Thermaltake CLP0598 Contac 16 Universal CPU Cooler for cooling.
