thanks, is this build okay though?

Looks good. Although you won't need the liquid cooler. Unless you want cooler temperatures, the stock cooler will be fine.

The CPU you have is fine really. If you want to upgrade, go ahead.

Any reason to use 16GB RAM?

Nothing in particular. Is it overkill. Just gonna be playing with games

Indeed it is. 8GB is more than enough for gaming.
