First Time Builder - Let Me Know What You Think

Hi all,

First time posting here. This website has been a great resource so far! I'm looking at building my first PC and just wanted to get your opinions on my list so far. I think I'm pretty set, albeit nervous, but would like the hear what y'all think. I'd be using this pretty much for gaming - my current PC couldn't run BF1 very well, so that's why I've started this process. I'm not married to the monitor or keyboard either and already have a mouse and headphones. I plan on waiting until Cyber Monday to pull the trigger on these parts to see if I can get some good deals on them.

CPU-Cooler: Cryorig H7 or Scythe FUMA

Thanks for the suggestions! Is there a particular reason that you would go with these over what I have selected now?

I really like the 212 EVO, I have one myself mounted on an i5-6600, just because I hate the stock cooler. But if you want to overclock, the H7 and the FUMA are the better choices. Performance wise and bang-per-buck wise.

Gotcha - I will definitely look into those. I appreciate your help!
