As you can tell, I already purchased the parts. I'm thinking about getting a low profile cpu cooler, but not sure that it's completely necessary. I'm sure the stock heatsink will be just fine. I'm building this for a friend of mine on a tight budget. I almost went with the i3-6100, but justified upgrading to the i5 due to the money I saved on other parts. This is a huge upgrade for him considering he's used to playing PC games on budget laptops and other titles on his xbox.
This PC will be used for gaming and web browsing.
