So basically that's my best option you say... I hear the stock heatsink on that 4670 is no good. Would I need a cooler?

It's passable. The biggest problem with it is that the fan is kinda loud. Temps should be fine since you won't be overclocking.

If you think it's worth the extra money go for it, it's 10% more money for about 5% more performance. Personally, I think the 4570 and 4670k (plus cooler and Z87 mobo) offer the best values, I just don't like the 4670. It's normally about a $30 difference though, the 4570 is just a bit more expensive than it normally is right now. If you're willing to put a bit more money down you'll get a bit more performance, it's up to you whether or not it's in your budget.

If you really just want a great machine on no budget, get a solid $150~200 Z87 motherboard, 4770k, and 780Ti.
The listed i5 build with a 660, though, is a good build around the budget of the original listing.
