Finalized First Build

After a lot of deliberation, and some rough moments, I have finally come along to (hopefully) the last revision of my first ever build. Opinions? The PC is for gaming and made to last a bit before upgrading. The budget has been to stay under $600 USD for all parts. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/8WxVWb Any and all criticism is welcome!

You could save some money and stick with the stock cooler the CPU comes with and get some 3200mhz ram, which will help performance alot.

I changed a better, and cheaper motherboard although it doesn't have wifi, which you can always add later with a cheap add on card. Since the mobo is cheaper, I upgraded the gpu, although the rx580 is also a pretty good choice here too. I also picked a cheaper case, and added a fan because the case only has 1 preinstalled fan. Although, you could also use a stock cooler to save some to.
