Hey, I came into this site 2 days ago and did research around and wanted to know if this is a good budget gaming built. Any suggestions? And I really wanna stick with AMD anyways guys, my first try!

You didn't include a CPU cooler, the R7 265 is worth the extra, the SSHD is definitely worth the extra.

Thats a great idea! The thing is, will it be able to run without an extra cooler?

Alright, I will keep the cooler in. Maybe any other cooler that you recommend which can be cheaper?

The Zalman CNPS7000C-AlCu is pretty good too, it will be more awkward to install though. For silence and performance vs price you can't really beat the Freezer 7, it comes with some pre-applied Thermal Interface Compound too so it's pretty easy to install if you build with it first.

Replacing the cooler on an existing build requires careful cleaning and application of Thermal Compound, so I recommend spending the bit extra at the start.
