Hi,
Since you consider gaming, i would definitely recommend a decent slim profile CPU cooler
If you could add a 128 Gig SSD, it can largely improve the performance of the machine at a relatively small cost, it is just a suggestion as SSD is not meant to make your gameplay faster but it can definitely reduce the game load times and help in background processes

Cheers,
Shri
