Going for a new PC and cannot decide whether to stick to the standard heatsink/fan or upgrade for £23. I don't do gaming or intense graphic design.

Here's the 2 specs:

£23 option-
Thermaltake Golden Orb II
Type Heatsink and fan
Fan speed 1600RPM
Noise 17dB
Heatsink/Block Material Copper base and aluminium extrusion
Special Features Radiate Aluminum Golden Fin Provide Sufficient Air Flow
Blue LED Light

Included option-
Standard CPU heatsink & fan
Type Heatsink and fan
Fan speed 2500RPM
Noise 25dB
Heatsink/Block Material Copper base
Special Features

...If you're not using it for gaming purposes, the standard setup will do you fine.
