Need your build advice for budget gaming PC. Please?

I'm not sure if "Components" is the right place for this, if not I'm sorry, point me in the right direction and I'll leave peacefully!

I'm looking into building a computer for Christmas, and I'd reckon my budget is around $800-900. I play a lot of League, and do the normal stuff like watch movies, write papers, browse the web, ect so I don't need a monster graphics card or anything, just something that can run most popular games at decent rates. One thing I want is an SSD for the OS, and I need everything except peripherals. I also plan on running 2 monitors.

This is what I've come up with over the past 2 days after starting out really overwhelmed and getting different advice from friends who don't really know much about computers. I don't know how to do that cool partspicker list that I've seen on here. But here's my link.
Parts list

I couldn't find the Power Suppy I saw on Newegg on the partpicker, but its a RAIDMAX RX-635AP 635W Modular supply for $65.

The reviews I read on the CPU seemed really good so I just found a motherboard that worked with it.

My main questions are, I was told I should get at least a 600W power supply, this seems like quite a lot for me, even in the case of future proofing.

Also Graphics Cards are the most confusing part of this for me, so any advice or suggestions for that price point or lower would be fantastic.

Sorry if this is too long, and thanks in advance for any help!
