Help please, 1st time building a gaming pc (budget)

Hello everyone, as tittle says i need some help to finish my build.
Here are the components that i bought already:

-Intel Core i5-6500 6MB Skylake Quad-Core
3.2 GHz
-Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX 480 100406NT+8GOCL 8GB
- Gigabyte GA-H110M-S2H
-G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 288Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2133

So i need a good PSU and a decent case, oh and hdd maybe later on sdd.
which would be the best for this build, full or mid tower?
Do i need an extra Cpu cooler for this build? I'm not planning to overclock

also is this monitor good enough for 1080p gaming ?

    A mATX motherboard and single GPU setup will be fine in a mid tower case. A full tower is pretty large...

    You will not need an aftermarket CPU cooler. Without overclocking, the stock Intel cooler will be fine.
