Hi. Im 13 and im new to building PC's. I built a PC that is around the $600 price and i was looking if anybody could tell me if there would be any problems or issues such as heating, a better case I could use, or etc. Thanks so much!

I'd get a smaller, cheaper psu and faster ram, but yeah that's a great budget build!

Power Supply tier list. try for tier one or tier two. you can probably get a good silver or gold rated 80+ efficiency PSU.

I myself woud go for something like this http://pcpartpicker.com/p/xwgLdC it's extra munnies, but great parts, cf option (in case you get a radeon gpu) i would suggest a 212 evo for cooling for an extra $30 and the capstone series rosewill psu's are tier 2a which is still excellent and less power bc you do NOT need a 600w psu.
