Is it worth buying extra coolers for a new budget gaming pc?

So the question is pretty self explanitory. I built my first PC, I like it a lot and plan to use it for the next 3 or 4 years and then build another one. I will be moving to an area that gets extremely hot during the summer times, and was wondering if getting a new cooler for my GPU and my CPU would be worth it, or is the stock just fine?

I haven't had any issues with overheating or anything in that regard, but I may want to OC towards the last year to get a little more performance. Any advice?

My CPU is a fx-6350 processor and my GPU is a EVGA superclocked 3gb 660.

Thanks!

If you're going to OC, then you need an aftermarket cooler.

Depending on your case, you may want to consider adding a fan to directly blow onto and feed your gpu cooler.

There is a 200mm fan right next to it so it should be fine.
