Could someone who is experienced with PCs tell me if this is a good build for a non-gaming PC?

:welcome:     Hardscope,

 

The build is ok for office/school type work if that is all that you need of it, I would though suggest that you swap the processor for one that ships with the appropriate heatsink and cooling fan, example here and change the 5TB HDD for two 1TB HDDs, 5TB would be an awful lot of data to lose should the drive fail + it would be a nightmare to keep backing up.              ​

Gday.

A bit late with my response but to add to Philpower2's observations. 

Your selected parts would work OK but please consider these points.

The CPU is 3rd generation (as is the 1155 Socket on the Motherboard) and is supplied without a cooler, so you would have to buy one.  A 5th generation CPU would also give you better integrated graphics. 

 

​Will the computer be used mostly for browsing, streaming, music, office, general purpose?    Will you be doing any photo/video editing?
