To answer you question I need to ask some too. What games are you playing? Which Gigabyte gaming motherboard? Which OS do you want to run? For gaming you'd be better off with a Ryzen CPU than the FX4300 if you can afford it. Also for heavy gaming the 550 Watt PSU will let you down. I'd suggest at least a 750 Thermaltake TR2. Also if you plan to keep a lot of games on your computer you should look more than 1 TB HDD. I'm a teenager so I know that money isn't always available but just giving my two cents worth.

Heavy games (excluding technically crappy ones like ARMA series) would run "somewhere around medium settings". I really don't understand that water cooler.
