I know there's been lots of arguments about this, but I go by this, the temp AT the time of bottling. Not the temp it was fermented at, although most of the time that is the same thing in my house.

Most of the time with kit beers the 4.5-5 ounces of priming sugar included with it is set up to produce 2-2.5 volumes of co2, at around 70 degrees anyway.
