Potential Build Draft.

pcpartpicker.com/list/2qZGQV

CPU: AMD - Ryzen 3 1200 3.1GHz Quad-Core Processor

CPU Cooler: No clue if I even need one...

Motherboard ASRock - AB350M Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard (For now. Not sure if Motherboard really affects performace, would like to know more but this is what I came up with.)

Memory: Patriot - Viper Elite 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR4-2800 Memory (Don't know how this works, this seems good, right?) * Storage:* Western Digital - Caviar Blue 320GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (Is this a decent RPM?)

GPU(Definitely the most important part for me): Asus - GeForce GTX 1060 6GB 6GB Turbo Video Card (costs around $275, not sure if it will be good.)

Case: Rosewill - Galaxy-01 ATX Mid Tower Case (Will this fit everything?)

Power Supply: Corsair - CSM 550W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply (Is this an adequate supply?)

Optical Drive: None

Operating System: Windows 8.1 Pro 64-Bit (Heard that Windows 10 is better for gaming, but not sure if the change is worth the extra money.)

Additional Details
Is this an adequate build for high MMORPG gaming? Should I get a cooler? Currently its at around $670, I know that is cheap which is why I came here. I can give more information about anything if need be. Thanks!

Don't get an A320 chipset motherboard. Don't pay more than $30 for your OS. R3 1200 comes with a stock cooler, so yes you need a CPU cooler, but you don't have to buy an aftermarket cooler.

CPU: AMD - Ryzen 3 1200 3.1GHz Quad-Core Processor ($104.99 @ Amazon)
Motherboard: MSI - B350M PRO-VDH Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard ($71.99 @ Amazon)
Memory: G.Skill - Aegis 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR4-3000 Memory ($68.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: ADATA - Ultimate SU800 128GB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($53.00 @ Newegg)
Video Card: EVGA - GeForce GTX 1060 6GB 6GB SC GAMING Video Card ($269.99 @ SuperBiiz)
Case: Deepcool - D-Shield ATX Mid Tower Case ($29.99 @ SuperBiiz)
Power Supply: SeaSonic - S12II 520W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply ($39.99 @ SuperBiiz)
Total: $638.94

Add an HDD if you want. I'd suggest getting a used GTX 970 for $150-180 or used GTX 980 for $200-220 instead of the 6GB GTX 1060.

Video Card: EVGA - GeForce GTX 1060 6GB 6GB SC GAMING Video Card ($220.00)
Case: Phanteks - ECLIPSE P400 TEMPERED GLASS ATX Mid Tower Case ($74.99 @ Amazon)
Power Supply: SeaSonic - 520W 80+ Bronze Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply ($53.99 @ SuperBiiz)
Total: $702.72

So if you can grab a GTX 980 for $220, you can manage to get a much nicer/better case, better motherboard, and a fully modular PSU within budget.
