Your stock should be able to do 3.0GHz on stock no? But ya that cooler on newegg should be enough.

But if I were you Id put more money into getting this cpu cooler.

Similar to what obsidian86 recommended and close to the same price. Its gotten good reviews and its what I'm using right now. When I get my 6600 I will keep it on. Its small and performs really well.

the Coolermaster Hyper 212+ is better cause it has support for a lot of motherboard, including 1155 sockets. So if you decide to upgrade to am3 or 1156/1155/1366 you can still use your Hyper 212+

Please do not recommend the Arctic Cooling Freezer Pro &. I have one sitting on my table. Mediocre cooling and it gets fairly loud. Not to be recommended.

Depending on your budget, the 212+ is OK. But I generally recommend a Mugen 2. At $34 right now, it's much better than the 212+. It's one of the top coolers. True, it's one of these collers where you put the mb on the heatsink, and not the other way around, but it's definitely worth it. It, with the Frio (much more expensive) is just under the VX and Megahalems.

I took a look at the heatsinks recommended but they are all over my budget, i only have about 20 bucks, and i won't be getting more anytime soon.

That is really to bad, preformance really picks up at $30. Most of the coolers below $20 are just re-done stock cooling heatsinks. If you can scratch togeather $10 more, you will be in a way better shape :/
