    running on 3.5+ ghz AMD
    350 gigz HD
    all rest of my spec are in my user profile.

    Those are my idle temp (CPU) and it stay that way while playing Oblivion at max setting, while the video card temp jump from 56 idle to 66 load.

    Its normal or overheating?

    appreciate

    Those temps seem fine, except for your hard drive temp. 58°C seems too high to me.

    If those temps are accurate, try adding some cooling fans to your case, particularly around the hard drive area.
