Hi everyone, this is my first time posting here so i don't know if this is the right category to post. I've done my research and i think that my build is compatible as is. but im a bit worried though since this is my first build, im afraid ill be buying the wrong parts. so i Just wanna confirm to the experts here if my build is really compatible with each other.

there was a notification though in pcpartpicker that i3-9100f does not have stock cooler but when i asked the store they said it has stock cooler.

and another thing is that my friend told me that i3-9100f tends to overheat so i was a bit worried and told me i should go directly to i5-9400f but im on low budget so i cant move on further i still need to buy the peripherals. so i also want to confirm this

What is your budget?

As for the cooler - it should be included.

Reference:

Do doublecheck the boxed model numbers. Get the store's response in writing - just in case.

And if all possible, save up, and install an i5.

Note: That 120 GB SSD is going to fill up too fast and too soon even if you are disciplined about storage space. 256 GB SSD is recommended.

The build is compatible but you may be able to do a bit better depending on the budget.

Instead of the small SSD & HDD just get a 512gb SSD to start with as it will be faster and save you some money.

That PSU is terrible for the price, change it out.

Memory is also too expensive.

Missing a Case.

it's fine, i can get an i5 after my next 2 projects. i Just need the computer right away since i'll be using it immediately after building and i need it for work. my budget is around $800 with the monitor and peripherals. and for the psu i Just picked anything that has the same specs as the one in the list cause i can't find it but i assure it is legit same specs and it cost at least 59$. do i replace the ssd and hdd with just 1 m.2 nvme? i updated the list.

@Ralston18 oops sorry it was i3-9100f but i think it's just the same though just no integrated graphics card?

@WildCard999 you got me thinking yeah maybe i should sacrifice it to get nvme, hehe thanks

You could probably do better with AMD Ryzen but for a 9400F build with peripherals under $800 this is what I'd get.

The monitor is Freesync so it will work well with the RX 570 which is also better in performance then the 1650. Monitor has built in speakers but whenever you get extra money get dedicated speakers or a headset.
