Quality check please :)

Helping a friend with an entry level build, very light 1080p gaming needs, no immediate plans beyond Sims 4/minecraft and similar titles for years to come.
Newegg currently has the sapphire pulse RX570 for $110 after a $10 coupon, pcpartpicker wouldn't pick it up so I added the price manually.

PC will also be used for hobby level video editing with a user friendly program, no sony vegas or anything of the sort.

This was as close as I could get it to the original limit of $550, with the requests of the friend in mind.
The requests were "great" 1080p gaming
SSD+HDD combo
H100 Mini case
Wifi/Bluetooth motherboard

I meant that there will be newer generations of CPU's that will work with that AMD Ryzen AM4 socket so that someone could go 2600 then later this year if need be they could upgrade to the 4th Gen Ryzens whereas the those 1150 socket CPU's were only 8th/9th gen.

This will game just as well if not better depending on the core/thread requirements for the games but also be much better for video editing. The motherboard supports Wifi and Bluetooth.

How can I fit that in the budget while still using the original case listed? I doubt picking up some slightly slower ram and a non-modular powersupply will make up for nearly $50 :S

Is the case really worth sacrificing that extra performance? There's also no upgrade path with that Intel, with AMD Ryzen AM4 they are coming out with another generation this year.

Yes, that's the case they wanted. And what do you mean by there is no upgrade path with the 9100F? I've been out of the game for a while which is why I made this post, but as far as I'm aware the 1151 socket will support up to the i9-9900k, that's a hell of an upgrade path. The only increase in performance for that 2600 that I can see is with multi-threaded performance, single core performance is about 10% worse which translates to a similar gaming performance loss. I don't think spending the additional money is worth the better multi-threaded performance, as in this case that's just a hobby. But I appreciate the suggestion! If the 9100F wasn't currently so cheap that 2600 would absolutely be a contender.
