First build. Would appreciate any advice or suggestions. Thanks

First off, thanks for taking the time for reading and helping, much apreciated :)

Okay so I don't know much, more like nothing, about computers. But I'm in
need of a pc cause my laptop sucks zebra ****. I heard building one is more economical, and that's good cause I rather not dish out more than five or six hundred bucks. I've done a little research about how to do a build, and it seems simple enough. I'm sure I'll manage putting it together, but omg I didn't know there are so many options. It gets flipping confusing. Basically I need a pc that will stream videos and moives fast. Something to surf the web with ease. I currently don't play any pc games, I'm more into console gaming. But I'm really looking foward to the elder scrolls online. So once that comes out I want to be able to play it on medium settings smoothly. I don't need much harddrive space, since I won't be downloading or saving pics or anything.

I have a beast monitor for my xbox so I don't need to buy one, and I can borrow/steal a keyboard and mouse from work lol :P Although I do need a operating system I'm guessing right? I am going to buy/build this by the end of the month, based on the research I've done, I used pc parts finder to come up with this build.
