I have a 970xtreme3 with a ati 4100 and a amd radeon 5770. my cpu and gpu hit around 100* F on internet only, not under load (Or 40-ish now, and in the summer my room gets really hot) so should I buy a gpu cooler? i found two, i believe that work. which should i get, and how do I install?

do they replace the fan next to my gpu?
 
Solution
After looking the case over I think you'd be better off adding an extra case fan and skipping those somewhat noisy 32 dBA slot coolers.
That case has mounting locations for two 80mm case fans in front. Putting one there should give you more cooling than a that slot cooler. Something like: Rosewill RFA-80-K 80mm Case Fan $5 22 dBA

While under load, according to speedfan, my system was at 46C, cpu at 79C, 47C for smiovt4 (?), smiovt5 and smiovt6 (??) and my HD Was 40C and my GPU was at67C

this was after about 10 minutes of skyrim on full settings maxed with minecraft with full setting in the background...
found a screwdriver, btw

OK. I see 5 fans
one one the side near a vent, another on the back, one on the psu, one one the gfx and another on what i believe is the cpu.
how would i set that up? and how do i know if its intake or not?

Instead of buying a whole set of new fans, you could also buy a completely new case that offers better airflow in the first place, without spending much more than you would for just a few new fans.

For instance an Antec Antec Three Hundred Illusion comes with 4 fans (including a 3 step speed control for each fan) for just $49.99 after mail-in rebate, on newegg.

Thanks for the advice. And at the moment I cant get a new case, but around november (black friday) I am. but I will definantly consider the 300 illusion because 50 bucks for a case with 4 fans is awesome! ill keep an eye on it.
And ill switch the back fan to pull out air. im short on money at the moment so i might wait until it drops a little or is on sale. but thanks!
