The PSU does not match the system.

Get something good quality 550watts so you have some room to upgrade if you want. If having no idea give a budget and we'll look. You are U.S. based or ... ?




Depending on the budget, I'd go with a m.2 SSD, not SATA, and yes, a CPU cooler.
That ssd is a M.2 NVME ssd,but if the only thing for storage does it not have much room. And a decent cpu cooler definitely. Something like the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Black is already a good cooler and pretty easy to install.
 
Agree on the change to the PSU to a Gold rated and 550w if possible and I would definitely go for 16GB RAM with 2 x 8GB modules DDR 4 3000 or even better 3200. Ram is very cheap at the moment. Oh and a Hyper 212 would be more than well worth it for CPU cooling.
