Need opinions, finalizing this build.

Almost finished choosing parts for this build my budget is around $700 dollars need a second opinion on if any of the non purchased parts could be upgraded. I have already purchased the motherboard, hard drive, case, and case fans. Here is the link to the parts list https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Wheatler/saved/YM3Gcf

The mATX board is going to look dinky in a mid tower case.

  • cheaper RAM
  • an SSD is a must-have for a new PC
  • cheaper PSU

If the case hadn't been purchased yet I would have suggested a cheaper/smaller case instead (because you have an mATX motherboard and an somewhat expensive ATX case)

Note: Just buy a decent spaced SSD drive in the long run. You have purchased a lot of stuff that you shouldn't in first place. lol

You could make it that way in first place.
