The CPU cooler you listed is crap. I would get this one: HYPER 212 EVO - This cooler is much better.
Also - A more future proof CPU would be the Intel Core i3 4130 as it uses the 1150 Socket and is also generally slightly faster than the 6300.

Also - the GTX 650ti is kinda overpriced - get the Radeon 7850. It will give you a lot better gaming performance.
Look at the benchmarks:

I know. People said that the 650 ti was better that the 7850. I had that originally. So should i just go with an intel? The prob is now games are using up to six cores.

They are, but intel's cores are MUCH more sophisticated than the AMD ones. Trust me an i3 is more future proof and should get you better performance. And whoever said that the 650ti is better than a 7850 is a COMPLETE idiot. DO NOT LISTEN TO THEM! A 7850 is a lot better than a 650ti.

They may have meant the 650Ti Boost is better, that is true, but not the 650Ti. The 7850 and 650Ti Boost are about the same price, I would say get the 650Ti Boost

That's true. But the 7850 is definitely better than the GTX 650ti.

This, and if he can put the extra money towards the 7870 it will be miles ahead of the 650Ti.
