Congrats! This, along with any other soldering iron would work just fine. Although this does seem like a nice one, having a programmable temperature isn't usually necessary.
I honestly think the most useful soldering accessory are those magnifying glasses with position-able alligator clips. Here's a cheap one: https://www.adafruit.com/products/291?gclid=CjwKEAjwgbG5BRDp3oW3qdPiuCwSJAAQmoSD6WomYhuYD3gzr7i7sdK3FU6Wjq60xIR9mz-qZPkjrhoCz5rw_wcB
This one's nice cause it has a place to put your soldering iron: http://www.amazon.com/NEEWER%C2%AE-Helping-Magnifying-Soldering-Jewelry/dp/B00DW47UV8/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&qid=1462604018&sr=8-10&keywords=Helping+Third+Hand+Magnifier
