I wanted to practice making a part list to see how I could match parts together, so I decided to make a $650 gaming rig. Not to buy, just to see what I could do. I'm hoping that this rig would be able to run games such as GTA V at decent settings 1080p. My concerns are: CPU Cooler, CPU and GPU bottlenecks, other little things

Gah! I totally blanked on the RX480 when looking at GPUS and I don't know what I was thinking when picking an AMD chip... xD I'm working on it :P
