This will be my first build, and before I order parts, would someone mind taking a glance at what I have and make any suggestions or corrections? I'm getting the CPU and mobo from Microcenter, but the rest I will order online. Also, are there any additional things that I need for the actual assembly? Like thermal paste, or does that typically come with the cooler?

Good build, nothing to change. Thermal paste comes with cooler. For assebly you will need screwdrivers.
