Any comments or suggestions just tell me. I'm a noob, but I have tried to do some research about the parts.
If I am doing something idiotic with my build please tell me!
What will you be doing with your build?
This build should be fine. If you want to cut costs more, I'd suggest only getting 8GB of RAM as that is more than enough for gaming. The i5-6600K is a great choice for gaming (which rarely if ever uses more than 2-3 cores anyway, so 4 cores is perfect) and with the motherboard and cooler I selected it is overclockable if you ever want to do that in the future. The PSU I replaced it with is better and gives you more headroom, and the GPU has a higher clock (better performance). I would personally prefer a 23" or 24" monitor for the GPU you selected but a 21.5" is perfectly fine so I left it in.
