Hello everyone!

I've been stuck with my prebuilt PC for about 3 years now and have been wanting to upgrade for a long while. I have been doing a lot of research on what I need to do in order to build my own PC (I am not very familiar with it) and I came up with this build:

I would just like someone to go over it and make sure everything looks good (Air circulation, if the stock cpu cooler will be enough, if the parts will fit in this case, ect..). This is my first build and I am very nervous. If anyone has anything they think I should replace or add please let me know.
 
This should be better...
