This build is going to be mostly for medium gaming and stuff. Be aware that I am a total noob at building Pc's and I have already built a Pc before for office work and netflix streaming sooooo yeah :D I appreciate any suggestions or comments. Oh I forgot to mention that with this particular build I am trying to be economical and again any suggestions from you Pc building Titan's will be most helpful.

That HDD is kinda slow, you won't need an aftermarket cooler, you should get a better PSU & GPU(there are better GPUs with similar prices)

Totally in agree. One thing more, if you're going for a gaming build I tell you to go with a 80+ gold certified power supply. For gaming there is nothing better. Seagate is a trusted brand and the Barracuda series are amazing for its price. For the 65$ you could go with 2TB probably. I would probably go with a better GPU, maybe the R9 270 or the 280 (if you desire more power), that would run games smoother.

If you're gonna be playing Minecraft with this don't go with that nVIDIA card, it ain't gonna do such a good job as the new R9 280 or 270. No need for better cooler for the i5, buy it later if you desire so, go with an ASUS, EVGA or MSI motherboard, those are way better than ASRock, even if more expensive you will have your money spent in something worth.

Hope I helped
