Nope, cant use newegg anymore. Everything was going so smooth and cheap and now i look at things in my area and its much more expensive. The i7 on Aria.co.uk is 245 and so im considering moving back down to an i5

Not sure why you have the A Data 500gb external hdd on there when you need a cpu cooler that hasn't been chosen ?

He doesn't need a cooler unless he buys a Skylake K processor, which he hasn't mentioned. All other Intel's include a cooler and certainly should be fine for a first build UNLESS he is going to overclock--in which case he must buy a K processor.

Dimerz:

For the same money as an i7, you might be able to get a strong i5 AND an SSD.

If money were no object, of course get an i7---but you are on a budget and from all I hear, an i7 adds very little to gaming. It helps when you can use hyperthreading--particularly in video rendering. Otherwise, you may not notice the advantage nearly as much as you would an SSD. The SSD has no major advantage in gaming either, but it helps a bit on many tasks and a lot on some.

If you insist on an i7, the 4790K or 4790 is probably a good bet. It has a very high stock clock speed. It's being replaced by the 6700 and 6700K, so it's starting to show up at a sale price. The main issue with it is the socket 1150 motherboard it requires---you'll likely never be able to upgrade to a stronger processor on that motherboard--the socket is about at the end of it's life. But it's very very strong otherwise. The 6700 and 6700K offer very little advantage----if you need an i7 at all. I'd get an i5 if I were in your shoes.

So this should be it. Do i need a sound card? Does the Ethernal port come with the motherboard? Should i buy extra case fans later?

The i5-6500 comes with a cooler--as mentioned before.

Are you getting a second cooler for some particular reason? You aren't going to be overclocking with that i5-6500.

Thermal pads are included, so you don't need the paste. But it's a decent idea to get paste anyway if you ever have to mount the cooler a second time.

Any particular reason you chose that MSI motherboard?

I'd get a pack of two matched 4gb RAM sticks instead of one 8 gb stick--so the RAM will operate in dual channel.

You don't need a sound card now or maybe ever.

The motherboard will have an Ethernet port.

I dont want to get 2x 4gb as if i ever want to upgrade to 16GB it'll be easier.

No need to get a cpu cooler if it comes with the intel.

Chose the msi motherboard for future upgrades and you said that the last one was limited to its socket.

Will this all fit in my case?
