1) An FX-4300 retail box comes with a CPU cooler. If not overclocking, or in mild overclock, it works. 2) AMD FX series is better in non-gaming than gaming. Most games do not perform well compared to Intel CPUs. Also, the only upgrade is a CPU with more cores, that also is not a great upgrade. You should check your preferred games for their CPU performance: http://www.techspot.com/review/1022-batman-arkham-knight-benchmarks/page7.html http://www.techspot.com/review/1180-overwatch-benchmarks/page5.html 3) Build does not show Windows operating system or shipping. 4) Sale prices change weekly, and new releases occur. We await AMD Ryzen release. The pre-overclock FX-4350 with better CPU cooler is only $4 more than the base FX-4300 today. You do much better by learning about parts and making your own list. Happens to show the lowest quality power supply sold with an EVGA sticker. http://www.realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/Page2293.htm price is about $400 plus Windows https://pcpartpicker.com/list/mtZzCy 5) If trying to be in the $400 price point, the best and easiest deal is buying a USED 2 or 3rd Generation Quad core i5 PC at Newegg or other sellers assuring a full width computer case with standard ATX power supply included and adding either RX 460 or GTX 1050 75 watts maximum with no 6pin PCI power connect required at $210 to $300 for the PC WITH WINDOWS INCLUDED. Your choice to upgrade power supply or rebuild into a new computer case USB2 front panel to match. https://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=Property&Subcategory=10&N=100019096%204017%204018%20601190664%20601190666%20600014655%20600014651%20600014656%20600014654%201100858365&IsNodeId=1&IsPowerSearch=1 http://pcpartpicker.com/products/video-card/#c=379,380,377&sort=a8&page=1 http://pcpartpicker.com/products/power-supply/#sort=a9&e=6,5,4,2,1&W=400,2000 I haven't checked the power supply, but: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883285062 $265 today, HP Desktop Computer 8300 Intel Core i5 3rd Gen 3470 (3.20 GHz) 8 GB 1 TB HDD Windows 10 Pro 64-Bit refurb. If the power supply is good enough, you add the GTX 1050 for $110 and come in at $375, with Win 10 Pro, for a stronger PC But as asked, yes, it includes a cheap CPU cooler. The list shown at the site is not the best gaming PC at the price.
