only thing i can think of is maybe the psu, gpu depending on the games you play, and add a ssd for faster boot times.

As far as upgrades go; First get an SSD, Then maybe a GPU upgrade, then possibly PSU

Liking the LTT fan, but please work on your cable management.

I can try but I don't think my $35 case will allow any more cables behind the motherboard tray

I was really talking about the loose cables everywhere. Invest $5 in a couple zip ties and clean some of the PSU cables up and some of the front IO cables.

If your not going to be overclocking your CPU then the CPU cooler that comes with your processor should do the job just fine without any problems just be sure to not mess up the thermal paste that comes per applied to the CPU cooler that comes with your processor and you should be good to go

Also you can get away without the CD drive but its a bit harder to install without the CD drive because you have to put the windows install on a flash drive

I wouldn't quite call it an advertisement, it's like calling band merchandise an advertisement.
