Do I need an aftermarket heatsink?

Would I need an aftermarket heatsink for this build? I am already a bit over my budget and can't afford another $20 for an aftermarket cooler. http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Exo/saved/1Dj8

No the stock is fine, but like Noob said, you should strongly consider getting a reliable PSU like a Corsair or Seasonic.
