This is my new setup. I record, edit, render, upload, and I would like to upload. I play mc and I would like to play other games in the future. Would this get me above 100 fps on mc? PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

You won't have any problems getting good frame rates on minecraft even with highest settings and 32 chunk render distance. And 100 fps doesn't even matter since your monitor is only 60Hz so the max you can even see is 60fps, which this system will have no problem sustaining. As for other games, you won't be able to play the latest games like battlefield on ultra but it will still look nice on medium-high at a good frame rate.

Do you think I need a cooler?

An aftermarket for the cpu would be more quiet and cooler than amd's stock fan...it's not very good...
