Amd coolers aren't the greatest so i would opt for a different cooler.The stock should work fine though.

Agree about the gpu,there are better option for the money.I don't think two extra cores are going to matter that much so why not go for something like this?

if you insist on an 8 core could you go for this lesser priced one,

the psu seems to be a bit much for this build and it is,but for the price a good choice.
Other decent cooler,

might be easier to install,is i think a bit noisier.Mostly the reason for another cooler along with the better cooling.
