I made a little tweaks, but this should have increased performance/aesthetics.

I'm not sure about deals, but if you live near any Micro Centers, you might find some.

This is a big leap from the original price, but you can lower it by going to the original case.

Haug, you are right in a way, but it isn't really necessary. It is already enough, and is a bronze.

I personally would prefer double the wattage from what all of my parts use up so thats why I suggested it. Also a bronze is the worst in quality that you can get.

You really can't go wrong with a Ryzen 5 2600 build, its the highest recommended "bang for your buck" gaming processor there is. With 6 core and 12 threads it also won't have any problems with multitasking and even some productivity/ workstation tasks. As far as PSUs go, they are the most skimped on but one of the most important parts of your build. I personally wouldn't do a build with anything less than a Bronze, and really try to stick with gold. If your PSU isn't supplying a steady amount of power to your parts, or is under or over volting them you are going to have a lot of headaches. Plus good quality PSUs have come down in price to quite reasonable levels now.

As far as sales go, don't know of any right now, but do you live near a MicroCenter? If you do then you will usually find the very best deals at your local MicroCenter. I live almost 100 miles from the closest MicroCenter, yet make the tip about every 3 months to buy parts as they usually have the very best deals your going to find.
 
Well under your budget, same performance...
