Good afternoon everyone! Looking for a critique on parts selected for a new build I want to do. Really new to this so any suggestions would be very much appreciated. Don't need the os or the power supply on hand already thus why they were omitted. Looking for a good gaming computer that serves as a home media output to a 55 inch Panasonic plasma TV. Looking forward to your input!!

I'd get the 256gb model of the 600p, since it's much better value and faster

Get a cryorig H7 or single heatsink Noctua cooler. They have better temps than the 212.

On a side note, both coolers come with thermal paste

Make sure that PSU is reliable! You don't want failure to take $1K worth of hardware
