The CPU you chose MAY require another CPU to make the motherboard ready to use the 3200g and why buy a GPU you'll never use? that uncertainty traded for the extra two cores are why I suggest the 2600. memory same speed but cheaper, case was way expensive for a budget built, that money went to the PSU and the storage solution. crap PSU in your build, this one is better quality. NVME SSD instead of slow SATA, the same GPU but two fans on this one.
benefit on benefit on benefit for a few bucks more.
 
Swapped out that SSD, those cheap DRAM less SSDs arent worth the savings. Also changed your RAM to faster and cheaper stuff.

For your GPU you may want to look on eBay for a used RX580 or GTX1060 over buying a new 570 in 2020. So I removed the GPU from the list.

Gave you a cheaper case and a much better PSU

Thank you guys both! If I find a cheaper 580 on ebay/kijij/letgo then I will defo go with the first option. How do I check the legitamacy of used GPUs?

you can verify the unit is what they say it is, but you CANNOT in any way tell if it has been abused by mining. if you know the seller and they only played solitaire go for it, otherwise I'd get a new card with a warranty.
