I would appreciate any comments anyone might have on this build. I am trying to create a gaming PC with about 2 years of "future-proofing" while keeping the cost to around $1,000.

I think something like this would be leagues better overall for the money spent and quality received:

Looks good, thank you so much! I am planning to order the parts soon, will see how it turns out.

I have a dumb question... The Cooler Master Hyper Cooler is a bigger heat sink for the CPU than the original heat sink included with the CPU. Is there enough benefit to throwing out the original and replacing it with the Cooler Master to make it worth while? Would I be better off getting an extra case fan instead? Again, sorry if the question seems dumb, just want to make sure there is a good reason I am replacing something that comes with the CPU by default.
