Welcome to PC gaming.

You don't strictly need that CPU cooler. You should get a stock one. Unless you intend on

OC'ing. It's a nice enough build. High-end GPU and okay CPU. Two most important parts

in a gaming PC. If you play fast paced games, you'll want a mouse with a higher DPI.

I'd say over 3-4K. A mechanical keyboard will also be a goal, in my view. With cherry MX blue

switchtypes. Then you get a nice clicky noise when you type.

Hyper 212 EVO is nice cooler at reasonable price, so why not, plus it might come in handy if you decide to oveclock(which you can,with fx 6300) and it definitely keeps cpu cooler than standard amd cooler.

At 800$ you're able to play HD 7950 which is high end video card so you're just fine.

That's a pretty decent rig. Corsair CX series are not known to have the highest build quality, and I think there's better cases you could go with. I would do this:

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

CPU: Intel Core i5-4430 3.0GHz Quad-Core Processor ($184.98 @ SuperBiiz)
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H87-D3H ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($104.99 @ Newegg)
Memory: G.Skill Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($63.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Samsung 840 EVO 120GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($104.99 @ NCIX US)
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($59.99 @ NCIX US)
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 760 2GB Video Card ($255.66 @ Newegg)
Case: Corsair 200R ATX Mid Tower Case ($39.99 @ NCIX US)
Power Supply: SeaSonic S12II 620W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($71.30 @ Newegg)

I went a bit over budget but the i5-4430 will be a stronger CPU than the FX-6300 will be, and the Seasonic PSU is among the best in the industry. I also included a better GPU than the Radeon 7950.

no.. just no.. My budget is around $800-850 WITH the OS, sooooo it's too much. Plus, the 760 is about the same as the 7950 but with the 7950, I get 3 free games,(Far Cry 3, Tomb Raider, and Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon).

Yeah I did go a bit over budget but the i5 will be faster than the FX: http://www.cpu-world.com/Compare/358/AMD_FX-Series_FX-6...

Can't beat free games though.
