No, this is not a normal temp. This is a pretty high temperature. That is 71 degrees Celsius and that is not good. It's time for a new CPU cooler.

Go with something like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835118223&cm_re=zalman_cpu_cooler-_-35-118-223-_-Product

Just check what socket type you have (I think its Socket 775) before you buy any cooler. You don't want to buy anything you can't use.
