Yes, the computer components are getting way too hot. Just open up the case and spray some compressed air around to get the dust out, paying particular attention to the cpu area. If it's not very dusty, then the cpu cooler is not doing its job correctly. If you've installed an aftermarket heatsink on the cpu, make sure the 2 components (cpu and heatsink) are making proper contact. If everything is stock from the manufacturer, then you might want to invest in an aftermarket heatsink, which in turn may lead you to investing in an aftermarket computer case.

I've never seen a push-pull configuration on the same side of a case.

Make sure you have an intake fan in front, pulling fresh air into the case and an exhaust fan in the rear of the case, taking warm air out.

If you have a blowhole fan (top fan), it can serve either as an intake or exhaust.

Change the configuration of your 2 side fans (the 120 and 80) so they both act as exhaust (taking warm air out).

Monitor the cpu temp with that configuration for awhile, using hwmonitor or core temp (http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/). If the problem still persists, you'll have to examine the cpu heatsink. You can 1) clean the cpu and heatsink surfaces and reapply some thermal paste or 2) buy a new after market heatsink.

It's because you're using the built-in Intel graphics for intensive gaming. If you were to use a seperate graphics card, you probably wouldn't have this problem.

if only i could open the side fans. i would not get new fans....so.. if i get a new graphic card and 2 new case fans for front and rear it will be ok.. if so .. i am planning to get the hd 7750 next week.. is that enough for my res. 1366 x 768??

A primary graphics should definitely take load off the cpu and lower temps. And yes, adding an intake fan and exhaust fan to the front and back, respectively, should help.

I seriously suggest changing the current fan configuration on the side of the case, as I wouldn't be surprised if the intake fan is taking the air from the exhaust fan; it's putting some of the warm air back into the system.

Make both of those fans exhaust fans to blown warm air out of the system.

Is that plastic sheeting over the side opening of your case?

If that is covering the side in areas where the fans aren't it could be trapping air in as well. Most case makers when they have a side-view window make it vented somehow for the benefit of hot air escaping the case naturally.
