~500$ Budget Build (Ordering soon)

This is my second PC build and was wondering if before I order it if there is anything I should change, I'm not looking for a SSD because I'm fine with HDD speed and I would like more space for a cheaper price. I can go a little over 500 but around that range, I'm planning on doing some light weight games (Light steam games, Rocket league, Minecraft) So I don't need it to run stuff like GTA 5 or Skyrim. Any info would help out. This is my current build that I have so far. Thanks! https://pcpartpicker.com/list/DR9tf8

No real changes. Just added a case fan and changed the psu

The case you picked only comes with 1 case fan that's installed in the rear, so I added another 120mm fan so you can have one fan for intake, and one for exhaust

I changed the psu. Not really sure how "good" the one you picked is, which is why I changed it.

FYI: The motherboard isn't a full sized matx board, but other than the "weird" size, it does what it's supposed to do and I have no real problems with it. Great budget motherboard.

Other than that, build seems fine to me.

The better term is how "bad" it is. Its rated for only 25C and is barely within ATX spec. Pass please.

As I pointed out above get a new PSU, that one is borderline trash.

It has a cheaper board, a board is just as board at this budget. Same for RAM. It has better case, PSU, and wifi adapter.

The case is much nicer, but OP just keep in mind that there is a $24 shipping fee with that case. It still is a nice case from fractal design.

Not sure how much overbudget is.
