You don't need to get fancy, look for a $30-ish cooler. Exact recommendation would depend on what country you're buying in.

Owned the 7700K for two years. Do not underestimate this chip's ability to heat a room even on stock settings. Get a decent cooler, air or liquid. You will need it. It is only 4 cores and if you are going to game, there will be some titles that will happily push this above 70% CPU usage. Expect throttling or blue screen o death with the stock Intel cooler. Light workloads you will be okay but if that is the plan the Pentium is up to that task as well and you can save your money.
