I am planning on building a (Gaming) PC. Are those parts good? I'm not going to play heavy games, maybe some FPS games and such, but I'll also edit on it.

Don’t use a 7600k, go for an 9600k or a Ryzen and I assume you won’t be iverclocking with that cooler so you’d be better off with a Ryzen build.

 

edit: why is there an optical drive in there? It’s 2018.

Thanks, I'll edit it a bit, though. I'll probably get a cheaper monitor, since for me refresh rate is not important.

that was from OP's build, which also doesn't have the price, so i'm leaving it as-is.
