It's my first build, I'm very new to the whole PC gaming as I've been playing on my mac and xbox. My budget is around the 500 USD mark, would be willing to spend at most 20-40 dollars more. No OS, mouse, mousepad, monitor needed, however a keyboard is needed. Meant for gaming but nothing serious, games like borderlands 2, CSGO, LoL and such. I would like to be able to upgrade it in the future. Thanks!

PSU is bound to fail, motherboard is meh, a 380 would be better, and save some money and upgrade by removing the air cooler.

Skylake build with the focus on Gaming. you can add more ram, an SSD etc down the road as you want to upgrade.
