The basics would do fine man.. You can get like after market fans for your processor if you want.. Also, extra fan case fans depending on what kind of case you get.

That looks pretty sweet. Put a blue fan on the side of it and your good
The plugs on top front might get kind of annoying tho, esp with a CD drive right below it. You'll open the CD drive and cables that are drooping down might get in the way, but other then that its good

The case comes with 1 120mm fan, but I would definitely add another, either side or back. The basic rule of thumb for air cooling is to have equal numbers of intake and exhaust fans. So 1 intake front fan and 1 exhaust rear or side fan.
