    bruh, I would go with a better gpu (if you can afford one) to go with that cpu. Also, for god's sake get a SSD for your OS, frequently used games, etc. it makes such a huge difference. Also, you can probably go with slower, cheaper RAM. I'm using 8 gigs of 2400 DDR4 myself and have no problems. But yeah, sacrifice the RAM speed for a better gpu. 3 gigs of VRAM is not enough for today's and future titles. Get a dedicated, aftermarket cooler for your CPU. the stock cooler you have will bottleneck that thing to death.

    Here's my build https://pcpartpicker.com/list/NKdK6X

    i5 8400 is dirt cheap and it's amazing for gaming. I'd go for that CPU and beef up the GPU.

    Yeah, if you go for that PLEASE buy an aftermarket (non-stock) cooler. If you don't , prepare to get throttled to death.

    I made mine with an ryzen 5 1600, unfortunately misses out on the 2600 series. It's actually a powerful competitor against Intel brands atm. Comes with an "aftermarket" cooler so no extra bucks there, cheaper for around 210, and is great for gaming. If you haven't selected a processor yet I'd highly recommend getting an an amd mobo for a ryzen i5+ series and getting a gtx 1070 up to 1080if your serious about 1440p gaming.
