Looks good except for the power supply. The CX is only a tier 3 power supply on http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-1804779/power-su.... They have also had a number of problems reported on this forum including poor volktage control (cheap capacitors) and badly moulded 24 pin motherboard connectors.

Try a better quality power supply eg Seasonic 520, XFX 550 or Antec HCG 520M

It's only because I don't use a lot of storage like when I had a laptop with 500gb I only used about 120gb of it and if I was to overclock would I need a better psu or cpu cooler?

No need of 600 or 650W psu,
your system will need max to max 500W of power at full load so get an Seasonic M12II 520 if possible,
if cable management is not an issue then you can use a Seasonic S12II 520.

Seasonic 520, XFX 550 or Antec HCG 520M would let you overclock with no worries. The CM Hyper will handle the fx8320.

You can get the XFX 550 cheap if you look around.
