New computer build advice

Hello all,

I am building my first computer and in need of a little help. It's more so of a do I have everything list.
* designates stuff I have already bought and have.

Processor: intel i5 6500 *
Mb: gigabyte h170 3 gaming *
Ram: ballistic 8gb (2 sticks) *
Gpu: sapphire Radeon r9 fury *
Ssd: intel 540s 240gb *
Hd: seagate 1tb
DVD: external to load windows(case has no slot.
Case: thermaltake view 27 *
CPU fan: thermaltake riing 120cm
Case fans: case comes with one, going to get 3 more?
Monitor: Asus 24" Vg245h *
Windows: 10 pro complete *
Power supply: I currently have a 600w from another computer (will this be fine)

Then a couple accessories like corsair keyboard and mouse. Logitech speakers.

So as far as the putting it together, I've watched some YouTube videos and think I understand that part. As far as hooking the fans up is that pretty much plug and play from the mb? Do you know of a good video for how to get everything going after you put all the components together? I appreciate any feedback or ways to make this build better.

  1. Where there is this guy on Newegg who helped me. I can't remember his name. Just look on YT for "build computer newegg" and you will see. No point of having a DVD drive for Windows. There is a USB stick in the back. As long as you have the key, you can download Windows Media Creation Tool. You also do not need a CPU cooler as the stock fan will work just fine.
  2. Oh ok I got the windows version from a "groupon deal" but it only comes with a cd and the key so I can just go to windows website or something to put it on a thumb drive? In your opinion is my CPU and Mb ok for gaming?

    Yes, go to https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10/ - and download that. Then use the tool to download Windows 10 onto a USB drive.
  4. Alright, thanks for your help. Do you think my power supply is ok?

    Yes 600w should be ok. But what brand is it?

    You should be good for now. I would recommend upgrading to a Corsair or Seasonic in the future. I have a CX650M and hasn't done me dirty yet (not that I plan it too)
  8. Ok thanks for all your help I really appreciate it.
