I've had a prebuild for years but was sick of how slow it had gotten. I'm still pretty new to pc but this is what I put together. I recently got into college so I'm on a bit of a budget. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/Y78xk6 (Budget is around $600-650 USD. No more than $700 preferably)

what is the total budget. mostly looks good although I do not suggest spending that much for a case when the power supply is such low quality.

changed to a budget friendly case and transferred the funds to a far more reliable and higher quality PSU to protect the system.

I prefer to stay within $600-650. Maybe able to squeeze to a little bit below $700 but I would prefer not to go over it. Oh and I just have a weird thing for white cases with tempered glass. Do you have any cheaper alternatives you can recommend?

642 with a few changes
I went with memory known to work out of the box with that board (on the QVL), SSD manufacturer changed to a more mainstream maker, but you get the pretty case and the reliable power supply
