Hey, I just want to know what is an ideal cooler for my I7- 10700? Im just using this for mid-high range gaming. Also, I'm good with air cool, not the liquid ones because of budget

I7-10700 (non K) comes with a stock intel cooler that will do the job.
I would start with that.
Under load, the 92mm fan will spin up and might be a bit noisy, but it will do the job.

What is the make/model of your case?
If you have 160mm headroom, there are any number of tower type coolers with 120mm fans that will be more than adequate.
Noctua makes some very good ones that are quiet with easy to install mounting systems.
 
A nice looking case.
Specs say it supports 160mm air coolers.
I do not know where you shop or your prices.
Here is a noctua NH-U12s:

There is a black version which probably sells for more.

A less expensive cooler that I have used before is the scythe kotetsu.
Here is a review:

Commonly available is the cm hyper 212.
That would work also, but I found it difficult to mount the cooler properly.
The instructions are not so good.
