Budget build $700

Hi,
I'm trying to build a computer for mostly daily use. I do play some games, but they are not very hardware demanding and I'm fine with low to mid setting, so I may start with a cheap graphic card and try to upgrade if I see the need. My budget is $700(OS not included). Anyone has some suggestions? Thank you. :D

    I just basically made a budget build, nothing special, just everyday with low/mid gaming capability
  3. That looks good, do I need a cpu cooler for this?
