gonna leave the cpu cooler for later when i begin the OC plan when i change the mobo
This may be another typo, but, you'll want to change the CPU (and the motherboard) if you want to overclock at some later time. You'll want a processor that ends with 'K', such as the i5-4690K or i7-4790K, plus an overclock friendly 'Z' series motherboard (Z97 chipset).
If you actually think you might overclock later you should get those parts now. But I wouldn't worry about it much, you'll probably be so happy with the performance of your new system, you won't ever bother to overclock it.
(For example, I used to get OC friendly parts for many years, but after never actually OC'ing in the past 7 years or so, I've finally given up even buying the required parts. :) However, I do have an i5-3570K, because it was the fastest at the time, and I do use a CM Hyper TX3 because it's very quiet.)

Thanks for the guide.
