i7 3770k cooling

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.

    Look the stock cooler is fine but running games for like 9-10hours would cause the temp to reach above 80
    Othe wise temps would be 40 idle and 70-75 at load
    If u can spare a 30$ for cooler master 212plus it wud b a huge upgrade


    Make sure you have sufficeint airflow in your case for stock cooler which case u hv???
