budget is $90-100 per part so i can buy a part each week i get paid until i have all of the parts. thoughts? this is overkill for what ill be doing which is light to moderately heavy gaming, GTA V being the most intensive game. thoughts? i don't really know a good ssd brand, feel free to correct me.

better cpu, cooler not needed since cpu comes with one, 8GB is more then enough for gaming, cheaper ssd with around the same performance, better psu and RX 480 with 4Gb is more then enough for i would guess 1080p.

questions? just ask.

Thanks. everything is fine, except that CPU price. I only make about $80-90 a week, so that'd be about two weeks. How much better is that i5 than the i3?

Just save up and buy all at once.

i should? i feel i would be more hyped each part i get, and i dont want to change my mind when i finally get all the money

well in a couple months something better may be out for the same price so thats why it always better to save up and buy it all at once when you have enough.

The i5 is definitely worth the extra money especially for gta v

Also does that mobo have the adequate amount fan spots and usb 3?

Yes it has USB 3 headers and you should be fine with the amount of fan headers

Without wanting to fundamentally alter your rig, I might suggest http://pcpartpicker.com/product/6gJkcf/gigabyte-motherboard-gaz170md3h as a motherboard instead. Sure, it's a bit pricier, but it gives you the option of putting in some faster RAM, which if you're gaming will come in handy.
