I've built a few computers for fun, never purchased parts on my own however. This is the first build I've made and I'm not 100% sure if I'm getting the best bang for my buck. My budget is 1000$ and will be a gaming set up. Any advice or parts swap that will perform better for the same price point if not cheaper is appreciated. Thank You.

It looks pretty good, except that I think you're going to want a power supply.

I'd go with the Cryorig M9a instead of the 212, cheaper ($25) and better.

Are you using solar power? If so, Great Job helping the environment. If not, then I think an investment into a power supply is in order :).

Otherwise great build, but a better CPU cooler (see: Kschendel) would work out and maybe keep the PC from setting on fire.

I am an environmentalist at heart, I own a 500w power supply that i'm going to use for this. What specifically about the cpu cooler should I be looking for?

Quiet and Good Cooling, a Scythe Mugen 5 or Dark rock pro 4 are very good to take into consideration.

Perhaps I should have mentioned that I have a power supply already.
