So I'm a little nervous at the thought of building a pc. I have a decent desktop now but it seems to have these cpu usage spikes that I don't know how to fix (its an older hp pavilion a6683w). Therefore, I decided to just indulge in the idea of building one myself with no prior experience.
So here is what I have so far:

-corsair 430w PSU, http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Builder-Series-Watt-CX430/dp/B0092ML1SC

-Asus Radeon R7 240 video card,

-Keyboard, mouse and monitor

I prefer to keep the pricing around $400 or maybe $500, but no more than $600. I'm more or less trying to cut a bit of my cost due to what I'm working with. I don't plan on playing high demanding games. It'll be mostly for games like league of legends, hearthstone, counterstrike go, team fortress 2.

Here is what I've been thinking about so far:

My knowledge is minimal so I've been going off this website:

Thanks for taking the time to read this long post, but as you can probably tell by now I'm a bit worried about spending money on something I've never done before.
