This is my first gaming PC, so I'd like to know if there's anything essential that I'm missing. I understand that this does not come with an optical drive and that I have to get an OS, but does everything else seem alright? Also, will I need to buy a network adapter to use an Ethernet cable, or does the build already include one?

I'd suggest a cpu cooler if you're gonna be gaming

I'm fairly sure there's a cpu cooler already integrated into the cpu, unless you think I'd need another?

Thanks for the response. I only plan on using a wired connection since it's faster, and also because my router is 5ft away from my computer lol
