Hi, I am completely new to building any sort of PC.I have put together a build that i think would be good for a beginner that wants to run most games with half decent graphics and frame rate. if anyone could take a minute to look over it and tell me if there is anything i do not need or need to improve it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/user/Hume86/saved/#view=VWdXLk

Here's my suggestion. I removed cooler because you get a stock cooler with the i3, I also removed soundcard because you have one included with motherboard. With the savings I got you the GTX 1060 6GB. I also changed Mobo and RAM for DDR4 combination.

Thanks thats exactly the sort of advice i need. This may sound stupid but how do i know if a micro atx Mobo will fit in my case? Currently it has an old standard atx in it

what is your case?

You can fit a MicroATX board in ATX case because mounting holes are the same. However what you should check is the clearance space for your GPU. Sometimes old cases have unremovable drive cages and can be problematic.
