Yup thats about normal for a Prescott core, they run very hot, it's safe up to around 70°C, and remember those readouts are usually a bit inaccurate, sometimes up to 10°C
Download throttlewatch from the files section and run it whilest running something that keeps the cpu at full load, if it detects any thermal throttling then you have a problem, if not then you are ok.
Replacing the cooler may not be a bad idea if you can afford it and feel up to it. If it will fit on your motherboard then the Thermalright XP120 is the best cooler for a prescott, if it doesn't then the XP90 is the next best thing.
