Water temp ?

OK what should my water temp run I'm not sure if my stock gauge is reading right. I'm just doing around town driving and the temp shows 190 to 200 is that to high or what. I thought the thermostat was suppose to be 180 or am I wrong. And I'm going to install after market gauges and where should I hook up for the water temp.
