There are also programs such as Speedfan that allow you to monitor various temperatures from the desktop.

One thing worth mentioning, the BIOS temperature will definately be correct, the programs you can download like speedfan and the like might be accurate but might not. To be honest you would be best to compare them and see if the program gives the same readings, if not then the BIOS one is the correct one.
Also have a look at your motherboard driver disk, many motherboard manufacturers include software on it for just this purpose so if you have a look you might find you already have a program to do this. Same thing applies though, check that the temperature it tells you is correct with the BIOS temps.
