Do you plan to overclock? If not, then it really ain't needed, unless you just want something that looks better than the stock.

Then I would go with the Tuniq Tower 120, I only hit 50c running 2 instances of prime 95.  I  notice almost no temperature rise when gaming.  I idle around 39-41c overclocked to 3.2GHz from 2.4, and that is with the fans at low speed.  I like my computer cool and quiet.

Unless you: - want to OC - have a loud fan - have high temps it's not necessary to change the stock HSF. But if one of these things above is true, I would look out for a good HSF for a good price. The Scythe Ninja or the Arctic Freezer would be good.
