I'm working on my first gaming PC build and I'm down to the cpu/mobo and i was looking for advice.

So far the video card I'm going to be running is the SAPPHIRE 100354OC-2L Radeon HD 7870 GHz

I was looking at Intel Core i5-3350P Ivy Bridge 3.1GHz for the CPU and for the mobo i found this but i dont really know a lot about the brand or if they would be a good match but being that I've only got about $300 left for the cpu/mobo I was looking for advice.

Will i need to buy an active CPU cooler or does a standard heat sink usually work well enough?
