CPU Build Try Number 2
This is my second try at building a pc, please provide feedback, thanks
Try? Didn't the first one go so well?
Your components are OK for a entry level gamer if that is what you are striving for. If you don't need wireless internet, you can do without the adapter. The MB comes with a LAN adapter for Ethernet. But if you need wireless, you might want to consider an adapter that has an antenna extension in case you need to position the antenna in a stronger signal path.

Just to pay heed to the issues/compatibilities that PCPARTPICKER list below. i.e. the memory.
Other than that, I don't know what else you could improve on for $500.
...Unless you plan on upgrading your graphic card in the future, you sure don't need a 700W PSU. You could drop to a 400W for that card, or a 500W for a bit bigger card, and then up your processor choice a bit.
Ur built has many issues
