The most demanding game I will most likely play is Battlefield 1, if possible. Will this build serve me well, or will it fall short? Also, should I just go with the fan that comes with the CPU, or should I buy a better one?

A year ago this would've been a amazing PC for the money... However that was a year ago, and you'd be better settled off with something more like this

Also next time try to use the Part List Opinions Wanted page, you'll get many more people responding :P

Thanks, I'll research the build you suggested and see if it I like more. Also, were there any specific details you noticed that were really bad or anything?

Yeah, the keyboard and mouse are just if I can get them, not necessities.

I agree with Vinyl. Specifically, if you're going to run an i7 processor, you should avoid bottlenecking that horsepower with slow RAM & a mechanical hard drive. Go SSD & get the fastest RAM your motherboard can handle.

Well, I have the fastest RAM that my motherboard currently can hold.
