I am going to buy an i7 3770k and don't really have the money to get an aftermarket heatsink so I am wondering would the stock heatsink be alright? I would be gaming and video editing. What would the temps be.

The stock heatsink will keep it cool, as long as you dont overclock. You should get around 45-50C at loads, maybe 55C. Later on you can get an aftermarket cooler like the hyper 212 evo, but until then the stock cooler works fine.

Gam3r is correct, the stock heatsink will keep it cool if you keep it at stock (hence the name).

I would recommend picking up something like a Cooler Master Hyper 212 plus/Evo, as you will get 10 - 20 degree differences from the stock cooler, and is more quiet as well, in the future.

The temps would be around 75c - 85c, and 90c under prime95.
