Is this a good PC. Something Worthy of the PC Master Race?

It's fine, but you should also get an SSD in addition to your harddrive. If you get a 60gb one and use it for windows only, you will get a much faster PC.

would also get an aftermarket cooler for the CPU.

built in speakers in a monitor never worth it, get a headset or some regular pc speakers instead

Overclocking isn't the only reason to upgrade stock cooled tho? Better cooler = less noise and makes the CPU last longer.

OP doesnt have enough money for an SSD... so dishing out another 50-100$ on a cooler, which will give him no advantage over the stock cooler, isn't worth thinking about. Noise levels on stock chips with stock fans are very low. Case fans on the other hand are a different story. And stock non 'k' chip will last just as long with stock fan, as with an aftermarket cooler. By the time it dies anyways, the PC will have become ancient.
