Already have i5, looking to build around it

Alright! after many days researching, I've decided to come to the wonderful community at pc part picker for help. For starters, working with a budget of about 575 usd. I already have an intel i5, my cousin works at intel and was able to snag me a free one. I need a monitor, and keyboard+mouse as well. Dont need os, but if you know a killer deal for win8 I'd be happy to hear it.Ultimately want to be able to run any game at 30 or more fps 1080. only my first build, so try to take it easy on me! thanks again.

Depending on the budget I would have picked the widely acclaimed but $144 MSI Z97 Gaming5.. The Asus-E with USB 3.1 is also a very good choice I believe...

One of the Best 390 GPUs with Excellent VRM & VRAM Cooling: Double Dissipation + Ghost Thermal 3.0..

One of the best performance-dollars ratio coolers.. if u want a better cooler, get the $50 PH-TC12DX Black..
