I'm a novice PC builder and I was wondering if this parts list is OK

longlivethePC

I have a budget of $520 that I can spend on a PC, so I came up with this parts list:

The problem is that I haven't built a PC yet so I'm not sure if this parts list is any good. Is there any way this build can be improved upon (while staying in the relative budget)?

Better? CPU

Better cooler on GPU

Much better PSU.
