I just bought a new desktop from newegg.com and I know that for gaming purposes, overheating is an issue. I've never owned a desktop before so I have absolutely no idea what to do about fans, or if I'll need any or if I will need to replace the stock fan.

Here is a link to the desktop I bought.

If you click on the image, it will bring up a series of pictures that include shots of the internal setup. Maybe someone here can help me before hand figure out what I might want to do to improve the cooling so I don't ruin the computer.

I'd really appreciate any help on this. :)

No need to replace any fans.If You plan to overclcok then you'll need a new cpu fan everything else should work normal.

I just want to make sure my computer won't overheat playing Left 4 Dead 2 and the like with what it has installed already.

If I need/want to, how would I go about adding another fan?

If you don't overclock cpu or gpu you don't need new fan, stock fans will do just fine.As I've seen on the pictures your case has one fan below power supply and I didn't see any other room for extra fan in your case or does it have one? So you can only replace cpu fan, gpu fan and case fan no adding new ones at least that's what I could have seen from the pictures.
