The last part I need a is CPU cooler, but I'm not sure which one to get. I would like to stay under $50 US, but I also want to get something that will take good care of my CPU. Any advise would be great!

It might be a tiny bit overkill, but i've worked with this before and it's really nice. And if you decide to switch out for the K version of the 8700, you should have a good amount of overclocking room. And the compatibility filter didnt say anything was wrong, so it should fit in your case just fine :)
