  1. Best answer
    You need an 1151 socket motherboard to match the 1151 socket CPU. Changed the RAM to be compatible with the new motherboard (DDR4). You don't need the CPU cooler, the i3 comes with one. Swapped the SSD for one a little faster and cheaper. The onboard graphics are better than the graphics card you have listed, so no point in using it. A GTX 950 would be a good cheap card for gaming at 1080p or less.
