Trying to build a PC that I can do some light gaming on and for entertainment in general. Ideally I'd like to spend a little less than what my list currently shows ($500-$700 budget). I play Apex Legends, League of Legends, and will be getting Age of Empires 2 Definitive (while on Discord and using Sporify). Please let me know where I should upgrade or if there are any better alternatives to what I've picked. I want to build a PC so I can just replace parts and upgrade over time.

I like it. Especially the swap for the SSD. So the computer won't get hot enough for me to need the cooler?

Here's my take. At stock (no manual OC, no PBO, nothing crazy) the performance between the two (included wraith cooler vs hyper 212) will be similar. If you OC the CPU and push it to the limit, the Hyper 212 will hold the CPU at a lower temperature. If you wanted to go for an aftermarket cooler Id aim about $10 more with a cooler from Thermalright, like one of these three link here which are not hyper 212 or hyper 212 clones and add a bit more beefiness.
