The total plus taxes is $750 and I can't go a penny higher.
 
You might want to try using PCPartPicker, which suggests if components might not be compatible.

Right off the bat, I can see some issues though. First, you picked a MicroATX (mATX) case, which won't fit a full-size ATX motherboard like the one in your build.

Also, Ryzen performs best with faster memory, while 2133 is fairly slow by current standards. Moving up to at least DDR4-3000 shouldn't cost much more.

Additionally, the Ryzen 1400 offers 4 mutithreaded cores with integrated graphics, but if you are using a dedicated graphics card you probably won't need the integrated graphics, so you could move up to a 6-core processor without them without paying much more.

Ok. Would this be better?
 
Yeah, I think that seems better. Going with a 500GB SSD for your boot drive, applications and most played games might be a good idea though. It only costs about $30 more for a 500GB Crucial MX500, which is one of the better SATA SSDs, and has about four times the storage, allowing you to store some games on it to improve their load times. Here's another option I put together based on some changes to your first build. This one relies on some mail in rebates to keep it below $750 though. I also went with a quality, higher efficiency PSU, though that might not be absolutely necessary. And note that Amazon has the Ryzen 2600 for $15 less right now if you are willing to shop around...

Edit: And by "shop around" I mainly mean Amazon and Newegg. While OutletPC was included in the PCPartPicker list, I haven't actually bought from them before, and it probably wouldn't be worth the bother to maybe save a few cents.
Especially since the graphics card from them apparently requires a large mail-in rebate to get that price, while that's not needed to get the card for essentially the same price on Newegg.

Also, I would probably go for that Phanteks P300 from your most recent build over the Cooler master one from your first. I only went with that one in my example, since I was roughly basing it on that first build.

Edit Edit: And that edit apparently removed the links, so I posted them again, this time with the Phanteks case.

So. I like everything but the price, lol. I was considering upping the ssd to like 500 gb but I just can't push it any further.

this is what I could work it up too. (everything found on Newegg because I'm not trying to have separate orders on different websites)

(I also found it really cool that with the purchase of the Ryzen 5 2600, it would gift me 2 of 3 games, free of charge. The Division 2, Resident Evil 2 or Devil May Cry 5. So that's something)

The final price would be : $810.77... sheesh
 
Oh yeah, probably tax?

Actually, I think it's the RX 580 that has the offer for the free games from AMD. I believe you get the download codes once the card is installed and you register at their site. It does seem like a pretty nice offer, seeing as those are new and upcoming releases. RE2 was released a little over a month ago, while DMC5 and The Division 2 should be coming out this month.
