How is my build?

Hey there! This is my first build that I have made: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/BgGR

I have a few questions,
1. Should I get that cooling system?
2. Should I get that sound card if there is not already a good one in the motherboard?
3. Will the ram and processor be good for gaming?
4. Will the ram and processor be enough for overall speed?
5. What else should I change?

MAX BUDGET=$500

OS=WINDOWS 8 64bit

More about build
  1. maximum budget. country? need os+moniteur?
  2. very unbalanced. if your budget can only afford such a low end gpu like the gtx 520, you're better off using a quad core amd APU, as the igpu on it is moderately good and more or less makes low end gpus pointless for newer builders, but you could probably build a better build then this.
  3. For gaming, the RAM is fine, the processor is meh, and the graphics card is terrible. Regardless of usage, the power supply is a liability. The sound card is unnecessary for most uses, the integrated sound is fine.

    would be the best id recommand for this price.

    can always upgrade graphic card later on, this has the best onboard graphics on the market and can do light gaming.
