    I'm using iStat Pro and I'm just wondering what "too hot" is as far as temperatures go, specifically CPU, HD...?

    I play CS Source and Warcraft 3 occasionally and it tends to get very hot... Up to about 176 degrees F.

    Pretty normal actually. My cpu gets up to 79C (~ 174F) when doing video editing.

    I don't think it's anything to worry about

    Nothing to worry about, Apple has built in protections that will shut it down before it has a chance to damage itself. Your temps sound like they're well within spec considering the application.
