AMD at this point is a bad idea. You would be better off with intel. Its must stronger single cores and better upgrade path:

(just a suggestion)

Do I need to purchase the CPU cooler since the CPU comes with a heatsink???

you don't need the cpu cooler and thermal compound since the cpu already comes with a cpu cooler and that cooler already has thermal compound on it.

Also if you want to spend 30$ more instead of the rx460 go with the GTX 1050ti. It will perform better. http://pcpartpicker.com/product/NndFf7/zotac-geforce-gtx-1050-ti-4gb-mini-video-card-zt-p10510a-10l

I agree in general with Enrico. That said, if you absolutely want quad-core or AMD, check the higher-end AMD APUs (A10-7800 series) - they're a bit pricier than the CPU you chose, but they are also the only thing AMD has on offer that comes close to Intel performance (& even then...).

Also, I'd add that Enrico's setup has much better RAM than the build you were considering and you'll appreciate the extra storage in the SSD in your every day use.

In that case, everything I said is still valid. ;)

Enrico's build will perform better than the rig you proposed (& will be better for gaming), and it's about the same money as you were shooting for. :)

Depends what you want to do - if your case has good airflow and you aren't looking to overclock, you should be fine!

Enrico's part list is solid, if you can push past $800 some I would recommend a bit better gpu. Other than that its as good as you'll see.

I would, but don't get that one. If you are spending $30 on a cooler get a Cryorig C7
