First time building a PC looking for some help

Hey all so this is the list of parts i have put together and i was wondering if there were any changes that i should look to make. I have no desire to overclock, the pc will be used for gaming, web browsing, and a little Microsoft word. Also i would ideally like to have the price between 700-800$ if possible.

This is the build i came up with: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/crazycarl39/saved/yPjXLk

I have no desire to overclock

You have a cpu, cooler & mobo designed to overclock.

Here's what I'd suggest, add a ssd for boot if you can bust your budget a little tho -
