I already have the OS, monitor, keyboard and mouse so those don't need to be included. I want to know what build is going to give me maximum performance for this price range. Thank you in advance for all suggestions!

Do not buy a low end water cooler. They are a waste of money. Air coolers have great value for their prices. Only buy a water cooler if u r building a very high end overclocking machine. High end water coolers are the only choice.
