I recently built this pc based of a youtube video I saw. The current price is about $640 which is signficantly over my budget of $530. Can I get some help downgrading my build in the smartest way possible? Thank you!

ps. I could do without the built in wifi in the motherboard, and the pc will mostly be used for school work, tv shows, videos, and light gaming like minecraft or the sims.

Here is the Ryzen 1600AF, its basically a slightly slower Ryzen 2600

Rest of the computer. Also swapped out the GTX 1650 for a GTX 1650 Super. Lowered you down to 8GB since at 1080P it should be enough

as much as buying used parts is cringy by a lot of people, at least look on facebook marketplace for ram, a video card, and motherboard. you might also find a seated cpu mobo combo ready to go and as long as it is lightly used and you take care of what you have or so to speak somebody else does, the parts will last you a lifetime. and you can save a huge deal of money. i have bought an msi gtx 970 4g sc for $45, an msi z270 sli plus pro with pentium processor, 850 g2 gold evga psu, and a stick of ddr4 ram (generic ram) for $120 altogether. All over 2 years ago. An i5 6600k for $100, etc etc..just recently bought an i7 7700k seated in an msi z270 as a replacement for my current because of a pin being broke in my old board for $350 free shipping, but that was a stay at home need it now coronavirus type of deal so i would never normally spend that much. hard drives you dont want to buy used but i got my 2tb backup drive that used to be my main drive out of a tv dvr. And my 1tb and 256gb intel ssd for $1 each factory sealed from a flea market guy who didnt know what he had. Ram though is relatively cheap nowadays but you can probably find 16g easy for 50 bucks. i paid 30 for 2x4g ballistix sport and then the hyper x fury i believe i paid 40
