This will be the first pc I will build, and I was wondering if this machine would do the trick for what I'm looking for and also if there are any unnecessarily expensive pieces that I've included. Thank you.
I really like that first build, thank you. I like the idea of using a cooler. Also, am I going to need any other cords, fans, or anything of the sort when I'm putting the pc itself together, or is this everything I'll need?
No, you shouldn't need anything else. Cooler Master provides 2 case fans for you, and they provide one pre installed on the CPU cooler, as well as thermal compound, so you are all set in terms of hardware. One optional item is an anti-static wrist strap, to prevent any accidental static electricity when you are building your machine, but you can also ground yourself by touching the metal part of the case and working on a wooden surface, with a tile or wooden floor. An ESD strap is all your call- while not completely necessary, it can be a good thing to have. I didn't use one with my build, but other builders will always use one, even when installing a new fan or doing a bit or re-wiring. You can get one here, if you want it.
